Title: Generalized Hamming Weights and its applications

Speaker: Avijit Panja, IIT Bombay

Abstract: This lecture is based on the paper "Generalized Hamming Weights for Linear Codes" by V.K. Wei. In this lecture I will define generalized Hamming weights and then discuss monotonicity of Hamming weights and duality theorem. Determination of complete weight hierarchy of binary Reed-Muller code will also be outlined.
