Overview

"This is a beautifully written volume that gives the necessary background to read the research literature on coding and cryptography based on concepts from curves in algebraic geometries. Both of the authors are outstanding researchers, well known for the clarity and depth of their contributions. This work is a valuable and welcome addition to the literature on coding and cryptography."—Ian F. Blake, University of British Columbia

Editorial Reviews

Mathematical Reviews
Coding theory has a rapidly growing corpus of knowledge, and now appears explicitly in several classifications in the MSC. [This] book . . . is certainly an important addition to the literature in this area and a serious candidate for becoming one of the standard textbooks in related courses.
