Research in Mathematics for Information Technology

Mathematics for IT is a 'cross-cultural' group, having connections with various mathematical areas including Computer Science. Our work has mainly involved: (1) error-correcting codes that change according to the degree of interference through which the message stream passes; (2) the mathematics of computer graphics; (3) polynomials over finite fields which have important applications in aspects of information technology such as communications and secrecy; (4) the use of fractals in representing nature, and in image compression and reconstruction, (5) neural networks, (6) mathematics (especially cellular automata) and music
