Abstract

This project delves into the underlying mathematics and applicative computer science of error-correcting codes. A brief overview of what error-correcting codes and how they work is proceeded by an extensive look at the Hamming code. Then the mathematics of finite fields and their intimate connection with error-correcting codes is developed and analyzed. Following this, the applicable side of error-correcting codes are inspected through extensible error-correcting code and noise software created for this project.
