Applied Algebra

We make breakthrough theoretical algebra into engineering solutions


We apply sophisticated algebraic and computational tools to represent data in noise-resilient ways

Computer Algebra

We develop fast, practical algorithms for computers to operate with bleeding-edge theoretical constructions.

Write Projects

We have many projects suitable for anything from Fagproject to PhD level. The project will be tailored for you on a scale between theoretical math and practical implementations.

Great Research

We publish in the best journals and conferences of our fields. See the group's list of publications.

Recent News

Published article in FFA.

As announced in a previous post, Peter Beelen and guest Ph.D. Maria Montanucci recently solved a conjecture on the structure of Weierstrass semigroups of points on the Giulietti-Korchmaros maximal curve. These results have now appeared in the journal Finite Fields and Their Applications. Click here to see the article.

Progress Sørensen’s conjecture

Peter Beelen and Mrinmoy Datta have just submitted an article in which a conjecture from 1991 by Sørensen is partially resolved. In this conjecture a formula for the minimum distance of q^2-ary codes constructed from Hermitian surfaces is given. Equivalently, the conjecture gives a formula for the maximal number of GF(q^2)-rational points that a Hermitian […]

Optimal codes used for post-quantum cryptography

Group members Peter Beelen and Johan Rosenkilde with coauthor Sven Puchinger of Ulm University just submitted the paper    “Structural Properties of Twisted Reed–Solomon Codes with Applications to Cryptography” to the conference ISIT 2018 (International Symposium in Information Theory). Twisted Reed-Solomon codes were introduced by the same authors at last year’s ISIT. They are a […]
