The 26 papers address finite fields and number theory, combinatorics and finite geometry, and applications in computer science, coding theory, and cryptography.
Veronesean varieties are fundamental objects in geometry, be it in classical algebraic geometry or modern finite geometry. In the past decades, several characterization results were proved for both quadric Veroneseans and Hermitian Veroneseans in the finite case, many of them purely combinatorial, but some of them rather geometric in nature.
The transfer functions of the waveguide, taking finite geometry into account were calculated using a finite element technique.
The processes discussed include control of paleogeographic position and stratigraphy on the finite geometry of the thrust belt; the history of progressive deformation and translation of far-traveled tectonic units; selective reactivation of inherited structures during the sequence of superposed tectonic events; the evolution of syntectonic and posttectonic sedimentary basins; and the propagation paths of thrust faults.
Topics covered include coding theory, cryptology, combinatorics, finite geometry, algebra, and number theory.
Content covers such areas as coding theory, cryptology, combinatorics, finite geometry, algebra and number theory, as well as the computational aspects of these disciplines.
