Thomas Honold

Professor, ZJUI

Research: Algebraic Coding Theory (subspace codes, two-weight codes, linear codes over finite chain rings), Finite Geometry (partial spreads, arcs, blocking sets in geometries over finite fields and chain rings)

Research interests: 

Prof. Honold's research area is algebraic coding theory and its links with abstract algebra, combinatorics and geometry. Although being educated as a pure rather than applied mathematician, he has shifted his interests (especially during his stay at Zhejiang University) towards applications and done application-specific research, for example on error-detecting codes for Industrial Communication, on LDPC codes and on network coding. The current project (since 2016) on subspace codes for network coding is supported by a grant from the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
