Coding Theory, Cryptography and Image Processing Research Group

The Coding Theory and Cryptology group performs research from theory to ptracice. The main activities in our group are related to: Algebraic Coding Theory, Cryptography and Image Processing.

Coding Theory: This 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 (Linear Codes, Cyclic Codes, BCH-codes, MDS-codes) and the construction of efficient decoding algorithms for these codes.

Cryptology: This 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. 

Image Processing: This is a method to perform some operations on an image, in order to get an enhanced image or to extract some useful information from it. It is a type of signal processing in which input is an image and output may be image or characteristics/features associated with that image. Nowadays, image processing is among rapidly growing technologies. It forms core research area within engineering and computer science disciplines too.

The members of the group are faculty members of Department of Mathematics and Applications and Department of Statistics and Computer Science of the University of Mohaghegh Ardabili.
