## Coding Theory and Design Theory: Design theoryThese books are based on the proceedings of a workshop which was an integral part of the 1987-88 IMA program on Applied Combinatorics. Coding Theory and Design theory are areas of combinatorics which found rich applications of algebraic structures and are closely interconnected. Coding theory has developed into a rich and beautiful example of abstract sophisticated mathematics being applied successfully to solve real-life problems of communication. |
