Lecture 42: Wrap-up

In today’s lecture, we saw the folded Reed-Solomon codes and went through the intuitive reasoning for why these codes might have better list decodability than Reed-Solomon codes. See the CACM survey for an overview of the code and the list decoding algorithm and/or the paper if you are interested in the details.

At the end of the lecture, we very briefly looked at some topics we did not have time to cover this semester. Here is an old blog post with more details on those topics (and more).
