Title: A Quick Introduction to Coding Theory

Abstract: In Claude Shannon’s 1948 paper “A Mathematical Theory of Communication” launched the branch of mathematics known as coding theory. This theory has played a crucial role in the digital revolution that continues to shape the world, making possible devices such as microprocessors, cell phones, digital cameras, personal computers, tablets, DVDs, CDs, and planetary probes. I hope to provide a taste of some interesting mathematics that has played a key role in the development of the digital age.
