The title of the dissertation is "On Decoding Problems, Lattices and Generalized Concatenated Codes"

Reliable and efficient information transfer is one of the building blocks of today’s interconnected society. With more devices connected every day, the importance of reliable communication is constantly growing. Wireless networks are used everywhere and they are evolving at a rapid pace. The remarkable innovation and improvement in performance we have seen during the last decades is obviously a result of technological advances in many fields. However, none of this would be possible without information theory, and more specifically, coding theory.

One of the problems that coding theory deals with is: how can we achieve reliable and efficient communication over an unreliable channel. The answer is so-called error-correcting codes. In this thesis we study different types of error-correcting codes and so-called decoding algorithms for these codes. We improve known decoding algorithms for several classes of codes. This is important work, since there are many known good classes of error-correcting codes that cannot be used in practical applications due to impractical and/or slow decoding algorithms.

New hourly-paid teachers for fall 2020

30. March 2020
Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis is looking for new hourly-based teachers for fall 2020. Regarding teaching in mathematics, we expect the applicants to have completed at least 20 credits of mathematical studies at university level with good grades. Regarding teaching in systems analysis (courses MS-C/E2xxx), we expect the applicants to have completed the course they are interested in. If you have previous experience in teaching, it is considered as an advantage, but is not necessary. This is a part-time job (2-4 hours/week). The salary is 30-40 euros/teaching hour based on your education level. In addition, a fee of 300-400 euros will be paid for grading exercises and exams.

Attach a cv, a transcript of records, and an open motivation letter as one PDF file.

Fill in an electronic application form on Sunday 10 May 2020. 
at the latest.

Based on the applications, we invite some of the applicants for web interview.

Summer 2021 Bridges conference

16. December 2019
Due to the covid-19 pandemic we will not be able to hold the Bridges Conference planned for Aalto University in August 2020.  We will continue to process the papers for the Proceedings as planned, so authors of accepted papers will have their work officially recognized as reviewed and published.  There will be a new paper cycle for the next Bridges Conference in the summer of 2021. More information can be found on the conference website.
