"Most coding theory experts date the origin of the subject with the 1948 publication of A Mathematical Theory of Communication by Claude Shannon. Since then, coding theory has grown into a discipline with many practical applications (antennas, networks, memories), requiring various mathematical techniques, from commutative algebra, to semi-definite programming, to algebraic geometry. Most topics covered in the Concise Encyclopedia of Coding Theory are presented in short sections at an introductory level and progress from basic to advanced level, with definitions, examples, and many references. The book is divided into three parts: Part I fundamentals: cyclic codes, skew cyclic codes, quasi-cyclic codes, self-dual codes, codes and designs, codes over rings, convolutional codes, performance bounds Part II families: AG codes, group algebra codes, few-weight codes, Boolean function codes, codes over graphs Part III applications: alternative metrics, algorithmic techniques, interpolation decoding, pseudo-random sequences, lattices, quantum coding, space-time codes, network coding, distributed storage, secret-sharing, and code-based-cryptography. Features Suitable for students and researchers in a wide range of mathematical disciplines Contains many examples and references Most topics take the reader to the frontiers of research Editor bio W. Cary Huffman (1948-) received his PhD in mathematics from the California Institute of Technology in 1974. He taught at Dartmouth College (1974 - 1976) as a John Wesley Young Research Instructor and then at Union College (1976 - 1978). In 1978, he joined the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Loyola University Chicago, continuing there until his retirement in 2018; he is now professor emeritus. He served as that department's chair from 1986 to 1992. He is co-editor of the Handbook of Coding Theory and co-author of Fundamentals of Error-Correcting Codes, both with Vera Pless. In addition, he has published numerous papers in finite group theory, combinatorics, and algebraic coding theory. Jon-Lark Kim received his Ph.D. in 2002 from Department of Math of the University of Illinois at Chicago. He was an Associate Professor at the University of Louisville until 2012. He is currently professor at Math Department of Sogang University in Seoul. He has authored more than fifty research papers and one book on Coding Theory. He is the recipient of the 2004 Kirkman medal from the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications. His research interests include Coding Theory, Cryptography, Combinatorics, Bioinformatics, and Artificial Intelligence. Patrick Solé (1960-) received the Ingénieur and the Docteur Ingénieur degrees from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, France in 1984 and 1987, respectively, and the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches degree from University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France, in 1993"--

Offers a wide-ranging overview of the issues and research approaches in the diverse field of applied linguistics Applied linguistics is an interdisciplinary field that identifies, examines, and seeks solutions to real-life language-related issues. Such issues often occur in situations of language contact and technological innovation, where language problems can range from explaining misunderstandings in face-to-face oral conversation to designing automated speech recognition systems for business. The Concise Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics includes entries on the fundamentals of the discipline, introducing readers to the concepts, research, and methods used by applied linguists working in the field. This succinct, reader-friendly volume offers a collection of entries on a range of language problems and the analytic approaches used to address them. This abridged reference work has been compiled from the most-accessed entries from The Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics (www.encyclopediaofappliedlinguistics.com), the more extensive volume which is available in print and digital format in 1000 libraries spanning 50 countries worldwide. Alphabetically-organized and updated entries help readers gain an understanding of the essentials of the field with entries on topics such as multilingualism, language policy and planning, language assessment and testing, translation and interpreting, and many others. Accessible for readers who are new to applied linguistics, The Concise Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics: Includes entries written by experts in a broad range of areas within applied linguistics Explains the theory and research approaches used in the field for analysis of language, language use, and contexts of language use Demonstrates the connections among theory, research, and practice in the study of language issues Provides a perfect starting point for pursuing essential topics in applied linguistics Designed to offer readers an introduction to the range of topics and approaches within the field, The Concise Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics is ideal for new students of applied linguistics and for researchers in the field.
