Learning outcomes

The course provides an introduction to coding theory, presenting the main notions and techniques for error detection and correction. In particular, linear and cyclic codes will be studied. The topics will be presented both from a teorical and computational point of view. In the first part of the course, basic concept from algebra will be reviewd, and finite fields will be deeply studied.
At the end of the course the students will know the main terminology and main results in coding theory, the more relevant linear and cyclic codes, their decoding algorithms.
They will be able to produce rigorous arguments and proofs on these topics and they will be able to read articles and advanced texts.

Program

The course consists of lectures. Notes and homework will be provided.

-Review on groups, rings, fields.
-finite fields
- Polynomials and the Euclidean Algorithm
- Primitive elements

Examination Methods

To succes in the exam, students must show that:
- they know and understand the fundamental concepts of coding theory
- they have abilities in solving problems in coding theory, both from the abstact and the computational point of view
- they support their argumentation with mathematical rigor.

The exam consists of a written test in which the student will have to solve exercises and answer to question on the topics presented during the lectures. The mark obtained in the written examination can be improved by the mark obtained for the homework and/or by an optional oral examination. Only students who have passed the written exam will be admitted to the oral examination. If positive, the mark obtained in the written test will be valid until the last session of the present academic year (February 2019).

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

News for students

There you will find information, resources and services useful during your time at the University (Student’s exam record, your study plan on ESSE3, Distance Learning courses, university email account, office forms, administrative procedures, etc.). You can log into MyUnivr with your GIA login details: only in this way will you be able to receive notification of all the notices from your teachers and your secretariat via email and soon also via the Univr app.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!

Alternative learning activities

In order to make the study path more flexible, it is possible to request the substitution of some modules with others of the same course of study in Mathematics at the University of Verona (if the educational objectives of the modules to be substituted have already been achieved in the previous career), or with others of the course of study in Mathematics at the University of Trento.

Documents


Attendance

As stated in the Teaching Regulations for the A.Y. 2022/2023, except for specific practical or lab activities, attendance is not mandatory. Regarding these activities, please see the web page of each module for information on the number of hours that must be attended on-site.
Please refer to the Crisis Unit's latest updates for the mode of teaching.

Graduation

Deadlines and administrative fulfilments

For deadlines, administrative fulfilments and notices on graduation sessions, please refer to the Graduation Sessions - Science and Engineering service.

Need to activate a thesis internship

For thesis-related internships, it is not always necessary to activate an internship through the Internship Office. For further information, please consult the dedicated document, which can be found in the 'Documents' section of the Internships and work orientation - Science e Engineering service.

Final examination regulations

Upon completion of the Master’s degree dissertation students are awarded 32 CFU. The final examination consists of a written dissertation on a specific topic agreed with a supervising professor and presented to a commission (Dissertation Committee).

The dissertation can be high-level theoretical or experimental (in the latter case, it may focus on either basic or applied research), it can deal with a theoretical topic or propose the resolution of a specific problem, or description of a work project, and may be carried out at universities, research institutions, schools, laboratories and companies in the framework of internships, traineeships, study stays in Italy and abroad. The dissertation must be original and written by the student under the guidance of a Supervisor. At the request of the student, the dissertation may be written and presented in Italian.

Professors belonging to the Mathematics Teaching Committee, the Department of Computer Science, and any associated departments may be appointed as Supervisors, as well as any professors from the University of Verona whose area of interest (SSD - Scientific-disciplinary Sector) is included in the teaching regulations of the degree programme.

Students may take the final exam only if meeting all requirements set by the School of Sciences and Engineering.

The Master's degree in Mathematics is obtained by successfully passing the final examination and thus earning the 120 CFU included in the study plan.

The material submitted by the student for the final examination will be examined by the Dissertation Committee, which comprises three professors, possibly including the Supervisor, and appointed by the President of the Teaching Committee. The final examination will be assessed based on the following criteria: the student’s performance during the entire study programme, the knowledge acquired during the dissertation work, their understanding of the topic and autonomy of judgment, their ability to apply such knowledge, and communicate effectively and fully all the outcomes of the work and the main results obtained.

The final examination and the degree ceremony will be carried out, in one of the four graduation sessions throughout the academic year, by the Final Examination Committee appointed by the President of the Teaching Committee, and made up of a president and at least four members chosen from among the professors of the University.

For further information, please refer to the Final examination regulations.
