Lecture 38: Guruswami-Sudan List Decoding Algorithm

In today’s lecture, we studied the Guruswami-Sudan algorithm that can correct RS codes of rate R up to 1-\sqrt{R} fraction of errors. The material in today’s lecture is from lecture 38 and 39 from fall 2007. In the interest of time, I rushed through the proof of the two lemmas at the end. The full proofs can be found in lecture 39 notes.

Addendum (4/19): Here is the CACM article that I have mentioned a few times in class.
