# Algebra for Secure and Reliable Communication Modeling

Share this page *Edited by *
*Mustapha Lahyane; Edgar Martínez-Moro*

This volume contains the proceedings of the CIMPA Research School and
Conference on Algebra for Secure and Reliable Communication Modeling,
held from October 1–13, 2012, in Morelia, State of
Michoacán, Mexico.

The papers cover several aspects of the theory of coding theory and
are gathered into three categories: general theory of linear codes,
algebraic geometry and coding theory, and constacyclic codes over
rings.

The aim of this volume is to fill the gap between the theoretical
part of algebraic geometry and the applications to problem solving and
computational modeling in engineering, signal processing and
information theory.

This book is published in cooperation with Real Sociedad Matemática Española (RSME)

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in applications of computer algebra and coding theory.
