Upcoming Events

GMA Colloquium

Date: Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Time: Period 9 (4:05 – 4:55 pm)
Location: LIT 339 (Little Hall Atrium)
Title: Dots, many ways (Coding Theory)
Speaker(s): Julien Sorci
Abstract: In this talk we’ll give a survey on the theory of error-correcting codes, and how they can be used to transmit information over a noisy network. After introducing the basic terminology, we’ll look at a few classes of codes and see some of the connections between error-correcting codes, finite geometry and graph theory. Along the way we will try to see all of the different ways we can obtain dots from other dots.

As always, there will be food and refreshments, as well as *gasp* socializing.


The current officers (for the 2020 calendar year) are:
