We generalize the construction of locally recoverable codes on algebraic curves given by Barg, Tamo and VlÄƒduÅ£ [4] to those with arbitrarily many recovery sets by exploiting the structure of fiberâ€¦ (More)

This paper describes a class of Artinâ€“Schreier curves, generalizing results of Van der Geer and Van der Vlugt to odd characteristic. The automorphism group of these curves contains a largeâ€¦ (More)

Two variations of the McEliece cryptosystem are presented. The first one is based on a relaxation of the column permutation in the classical McEliece scrambling process. This is done in such a wayâ€¦ (More)

The Hasse Weil bound restricts the number of points of a curve which are defined over a finite field; if the number of points meets this bound, the curve is called maximal. Giulietti and Korchmarosâ€¦ (More)
