Lars Eirik Danielsen, "On Connections Between Graphs, Codes, Quantum States, and Boolean Functions".  May 2008


We study objects that can be represented as graphs, error-correcting codes, quantum states, or Boolean functions. It is known that self-dual additive codes, which can also be ...

G. David Forney, Jr. Daniel J. Costello, Jr., "Channel Coding: The Road to Channel Capacity".  Jul 2007

Starting from Shannon's celebrated 1948 channel coding theorem, we trace the evolution of channel coding from Hamming codes to capacity-approaching codes. We focus ...
