Recent Applications to Communications
Modern-day communication often involves multiple transmitters and receivers. These are related by something called a channel matrix. The challenge of coding theory here becomes one of finding well-spaced matrices instead of wellspaced vectors, which can be accomplished through some group theory or division ring theory. The second topic in this chapter is quasirandom (so-called low discrepancy) sequences, which are good for applications in the theory of algebraicgeometry codes and also in mathematical finance.
