Research

Interests = information theory; coding theory; polar code; distributed system; application of algebra and combinatorics.

For meta-comments of my works categorized by topics, see:

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.
