## Lecture 5: Background- II

In Friday’s lecture, we did a quick overview of the $O(\cdot), \Omega(\cdot), o(\cdot), \omega(\cdot)$ notation and also introduced the notion of code families. We then did a quick overview of fields and in particular, finite fields.

In the next lecture, we will talk about linear subspace (over finite fields).

Also, I’m still waiting for some UBIT names, so please send me yours if you haven’t already.
