Error Correcting Codes
Kosek, Peter M

2014, Master of Science, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
Error correcting codes is an area of mathematics that combines many theoretical concepts with a wide variety of applications. In this expository thesis, we will begin by introducing many of the fundamental ideas in classical error correcting codes. The goal of this is to introduce the reader to the field of coding theory and discuss a few of the wide range of classical codes that have been studied. The second section will discuss the recent findings in error correcting codes, namely their use in quantum error correcting codes. This section uses much more theoretical areas of math, when compared to the classical section, in the construction of quantum error correcting codes. Most of the research discussed in this section has been completed within the past six years. All of the research discoveries presented in this thesis have been previously known.
