2Finite Fields, Vector Spaces, Finite Geometries, and Graphs

 

This chapter presents some important elements of modern algebra and combinatorial mathematics, namely, finite fields, vector spaces, finite geometries, and graphs, that are needed in the presentation of the fundamentals of classical channel codes and various constructions of modern channel codes in the following chapters. The treatment of these mathematical elements is by no means rigorous and coverage is kept at an elementary level. There are many good text books on modern algebra, combinatorial mathematics, and graph theory that provide rigorous treatment and in-depth coverage of finite fields, vector spaces, finite geometries, and graphs. Some of these texts are listed at the end ...
