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.
