Theme and scope

This special issue is dedicated to the themes and ideas present in Vera Pless's scientific career. A non-exhaustive list is as follows:

  • Algebraic coding theory: cyclic codes, quadratic residue codes, double circulant codes, algebraic decoding
  • Combinatorial Coding Theory: covering radius, frameproof codes
  • Self-dual codes: arithmetic constructions, weight enumerates, formally self-dual codes, classification and enumeration
  • Optimal codes: bounds, finite geometry constructions
  • Codes over rings: codes over local rings
  • Combinatorial designs: designs supported by codewords, codes spanned by incidence matrices
  • Combinatorial games: greedy codes
  • Code-based cryptography
