23/6: The results are in. A: 5, B: 5, C: 3, D: 3, E: 3, F: 4.

Some comments:

  • 1a: Too many had trouble with this.
  • 1c: Too many people gave a parity check matrix for the permutation-equivalent code, not the original code.
  • 1d: Syndrome decoding turned out to be hard, and some people forgot they were working over a non-binary field.
  • 3: Too many people did not get the difference between upper bounds (no codes better than this exist) and lower bounds (codes at least this good exist).

13/6: This year's exam with suggested solutions.
