Group testing matrices from codes: There and back again

Abstract. Kautz and Singleton introduced a method for constructing binary superimposed codes from nonbinary error-correcting codes. This construction has long been used to yield binary group testing matrices, which have current applications to disease detection in pandemics such as COVID-19. In this talk will explore the code properties that impact group testing parameters, and vice versa.

Biography. Katie Haymaker is an associate professor of mathematics at Villanova University, outside of Philadelphia. She received her PhD and MS degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and her undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College. She works in coding theory and applied discrete mathematics.
