This group is comprised of three full-time PhD faculty from the area of Applied Mathematics at the Statistics, Mathematics, and Informatics Department who also belong to the CIO, in addition to another group member who is a doctoral candidate and part-time lecturer in the same department and area. The study and construction of convolutional codes is this group's main objective. Given that one of the tools we use to represent convolutional codes is discrete-time linear control systems, we also examine the properties and representations of discrete-time linear control systems and usually defined on finite bodies.
Once a convolutional code is designed, we then strive to construct decoding algorithms that exploit the algebraic properties of said code. Furthermore, the application of convolutional codes in cryptography is another objective.
