Locally Recoverable Codes with Availability and Hierarchy from Geometry 

Abstracts. Curves and higher dimensional varieties over finite fields have rich geometric structure that can lead to natural constructions of codes with locality, availability, and hierarchy. This talk will discuss how locally recoverable codes with availability from fiber products of curves are also endowed with a hierarchical recovery structure, as well as discussing the extra structure of more general geometric constructions including Reed-Muller codes and codes on Artin-Schreier-type surfaces.

Biography. Beth Malmskog is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Colorado College.  She is particularly interested in connections between codes, algebra, and geometry. Website:
