Finite Fields for Computer Scientists and Engineers by Robert J. McEliece

By Robert J. McEliece

This ebook built from a path on finite fields I gave on the collage of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign within the Spring semester of 1979. The path was once taught on the request of an excellent crew of graduate scholars (includ­ ing Anselm Blumer, Fred Garber, Evaggelos Geraniotis, Jim Lehnert, Wayne Stark, and Mark Wallace) who had simply taken a path on coding idea from me. the idea of finite fields is the mathematical beginning of algebraic coding thought, yet in coding thought classes there's by no means a lot time to offer greater than a "Volkswagen" remedy of them. yet my 1979 scholars sought after a "Cadillac" therapy, and this ebook differs little or no from the direction I gave in reaction. seeing that 1979 i've got used a subset of my path notes (correspond­ ing approximately to Chapters 1-6) because the textual content for my "Volkswagen" therapy of finite fields every time I educate coding conception. there's, paradoxically, no coding concept wherever within the ebook! If this e-book had an extended name it might be "Finite fields, normally of char­ acteristic 2, for engineering and computing device technological know-how purposes. " It definitely doesn't fake to hide the overall idea of finite fields within the profound intensity that the new booklet of Lidl and Neidereitter (see the Bibliography) does.
