Project Details


When a mobile phone call is made, or a video is streamed, much more information is transferred than just a single copy of the sounds and pictures. Rather, the transmission is packed with redundancy, so as to protect the message from corruption and from getting lost on the way. How to do this without sending more information than necessary is the key questions in this project, and the questions are largely the same as when storing data in large data centres such as those of Google or Facebook.

Mathematically, this is about storing dependences between objects in such a way that each piece of information is dependent on some others, but the system does not have too much redundancy as a whole. The mathematical language to capture such statements is that of matroid theory, and is also applicable in optimisation theory and geometry. I will find similarities between these interpretations of matroids, and use these to get results in both geometry and in data storage.
