OFFER DESCRIPTION

The  Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences announces a postdoctoral position in the field of Coding Theory, funded by the Bulgarian Research Program PIKOM (ПИКОМ). Duration of the position is 6 or 12 months, extendable for up to 36 months. Successful candidates will work in the department "Mathematical Foundations of Informatics and be affiliated with the International Center for Mathematical Sciences, Sofia (ICMS-Sofia), which is part of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics.

Field: Bounds for codes and designs in polynomials metric spaces (PM-spaces).

Supervisor: prof. Peter Boyvalenkov

Brief annotation:

Since the early 90’s a number of results have been generated in an investigation of universal bounds for codes in PM-spaces including as major examples the Euclidean spheres, projective spaces, the Hamming and Johnson spaces. The group has proved necessary and sufficient conditions for the optimality of universal bounds and developed methods for deriving new bounds when certain universal bounds are not optimal. These results were applied in maximum code problems and minimum energy problems coming from coding theory and potential theory, respectively. Recent projects include obtaining bounds for codes of prescribed minimum distance and diameter, and for codes of given cardinality and separation.
