Paper on excellent AG codes in the Transactions of Information Theory

The paper “Two-Point Codes for the Generalized GK curve” is accepted for publication in the prestigious IEEE Transactions of Information Theory. The paper investigates a recently discovered family of maximal curves and details how techniques developed by Peter Beelen can be used to find record-breaking error-correcting codes with these curves.

The paper was very much a group effort: all four permanent members of the group as well as guest PhD student √Člise Barelli featured as authors. The research started as part of our study group but quickly led to these new results.
