**Date & Time:** Thursday, November 5, 2015, 18:30-19:30.

**Venue:** Ramanujan Hall

**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.
