Title: Affine Grassmann codes
Abstract: Grassmannians are classical varieties parametrizing subspaces of a projective space. These varieties can also be used to construct error-correcting codes. The resulting codes have been investigated, among others, by Ghorpade, Høholdt, Piñero and myself. In this talk I will give an overview of the results we have obtained in the past few years.
