2 Days until this Event

Whenever data is transmitted across a channel, errors are likely to occur and the received message may not be identical to the original message. An error-correcting code is an algorithm for expressing a sequence of elements so that any errors formed during data transmission can be detected and possibly corrected. These codes have many real-world applications, such as in cell phones, credit cards, CDs, high-speed modems, and ISBN numbers. In this talk, I will discuss the basic construction of different types of error-correcting codes.

    Calculus is taught today using limits: a derivative is a limit (of Newton quotients), an integral is a limit (of Riemann sums), and infinite series are limits (of partial sums). When calculus was first created there were no limits, but in their plac...
