## Jessalyn Bolkema – University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The tensor-like join: graph-theoretic insights into polar code performance Arikan's polar codes have been celebrated for their capacity-achieving performance since first presented in 2008; however, the question of optimal finite-length design and decoding remains open. To understand the efficacy of…

Higher Eisenstein Congruences In this talk, we examine the relationship between the ``depth" of certain Eisenstein congruences and the local structure of the Eisenstein ideal. Specifically, let $latex p\geq 3$ be prime. For squarefree level $latex N>6$ and weight $latex…

Coding Techniques for Partial Erasure Channels. Partial erasure channels were recently introduced to model erasure events in applications such as flash memories. In these channels, some information may remain after an erasure event. After reviewing these channels, we present results…
