Introduction / mission

The two chairs within DM maintain the tw main research areas: the more applied coding theory and cryptology and the more fundamental discrete algebra and geometry.

Highlighted phrase

The section DM is interested in all mathematical problems of a discrete nature. 

Organisational profile

The section DM has two chairs:

The chair for Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) performs research in theoretical and applied areas of both topics:

Coding Theory is the mathematical theory of encoding information in such a way that it becomes resistant to transmission errors. The main topics are the study of the properties of various codes (cyclic codes, BCH-codes, MDS-codes, algebraic-geometric codes) and the construction of efficient decoding algorithms for these codes.

Cryptology is the mathematical theory of protecting information against unauthorized access (privacy), determining if a message has been altered by a third party (integrity), adding a signature to an electronic document and verifying the identity.

Discrete Algebra and Geometry

Phenomena throughout mathematics and the natural sciences have discrete algebraic aspects, often along with analytical counterparts. While the latter are typically modelled using real numbers, differential equations, and numerical computations, describing the discrete-algebraic aspects involves objects like nite elds, graphs, polynomials, groups, algebras, and symbolic computations. The Discrete Algebra and Geometry (DAG) group at the TU/e develops the mathematics needed for such a description.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
