|Title:||Quadratic Forms, Projective Geometry and the Kerdock Code|
|Seminar:||Algebra and Number Theory Seminar|
|We begin with an introduction to Quadratic form theory in characteristic two. The Kerdock code is then constructed from a class of these forms. This is followed by a decoding scheme for the Nordstrom-Robinson code (a small Kerdock code) using the geometry of PG(3.2).|
