Research

Interests = Information theory / coding theory / Shannon theory: Random coding and polar coding over communication channels. Distributed storage and distributed computation, application of algebra and combinatorics to.

See polar comments for meta-explanation of polar coding papers.
See also distributed comments for meta-explanation of distributed storage and distributed computation papers.

I have once computed, on a supercomputer, the Tutte–Whitney polynomials of Reed–Muller codes of length 64. This GitHub repository keeps source codes, comments, and results.

Publications

Log-logarithmic Time Pruned Polar Coding is in IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, March 2021.

Polar Codes’ Simplicity, Random Codes’ Durability is in IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, March 2021.
