  • Author(s):
    Christoph Clavius
    Abstract:

    The Opera Mathematica of Christoph Clavius was compiled in 1611-1612 and contains works within the fields of both pure and applied mathematics. One of the most famous selections from this set is, of course, Clavius exposition of the Gregorian calendar. Except for the Commentary on Theodosius (1721) and the Commentary on John of Holywood’s Spheres (1784), however, there are no English translations of Clavius’ works. As Fr.

    Abstract:

    The DASPOS project is an NSF-funded collaborative research project designed to explore the technical means of preserving the data and software components necessary to reproduce and build upon published scientific results. This technical report series consists of short reports that outline background, case studies, and technical results related to data preservation, with a focus on high energy physics.

    Description:
    When digital data is transmitted through an unreliable communication channel, it is often the case that errors can occur, causing the information received to differ from what was originally sent. Fortunately, there are ways to encode data so that errors can be detected and even corrected. This expository thesis focuses on a special class of codes, called linear codes, that have particularly nice properties that are useful for error detection and correction.
