How to pronounce my name?
Interests: information theory / coding theory / polar code / distributed system / group testing / applications of algebra, combinatorics, calculus, and probability theory.
For meta-comments of my works categorized by topics, see:
[Polder ordering papers] (to be elaborated…)
I have once computed, on a supercomputer, the Tutte–Whitney polynomials of Reed–Muller codes of length 64. This GitHub repository keeps the source codes, comments, and results.
