Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) 
Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) (this page) Section Discrete Mathematics

The chair for Coding Theory and Cryptology performs research in theoretical and applied areas of both topics. Coding Theory is the mathematical theory of encoding information in such a way that it becomes resistant to transmission errors. The main topics are the study of the properties of various codes (cyclic codes, BCHcodes, MDScodes, algebraicgeometric codes) and the construction of efficient decoding algorithms for these codes.Cryptology is the mathematical theory of protecting information against unauthorized access (privacy), determining if a message has been altered by a third party (integrity), adding a signature to an electronic document and verifying the identity. The group is part of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science within the section Discrete Mathematics and of EI/Ψ, the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Data and Information.
