# Arithmetics, Geometry, and Coding Theory

A publication of the Société Mathématique de France

The Conference on Arithmetics, Geometry, and Coding Theory
was held at the International Center of Mathematical Meetings of
Luminy (CIRM) in Marseilles from September 26–30, 2005. The
conference focused on the interaction between number theory and
algebraic geometry and the interaction between coding theory and
cryptography. It addressed such subjects as curves covered by the
Hermitian curve, towers of function fields, bilinear complexity of the
multiplication in the finite fields, codes on various varieties,
estimate of the Picard number of surfaces via \(p\)-adic
cohomology, minimal distance of codes on a surface, and the
Euler-Kronecker constant on global fields.

Public key cryptography provided an opportunity for talks on curves and
their jacobians: jacobians of \(C_{ab}\) curves, a CRT
algorithm to construct genus 2 curves over finite fields,
hyperelliptic jacobians and the Steinberg representations. Other
talks were devoted to the relations between the enumerator polynomial
of codes and modular forms and to a similar construction with
construction A of lattices from binary codes to build convolutional
codes starting from block codes.
