3 Review - Fields Def (field): A set F with two binary operations + (addition) and · (multiplication) is called a field if 6  a,b  F, a·b  F 7  a,b,c  F, (a·b)·c=a·(b·c) 8  a,b  F, a·b=b·a 9  1  F,  a  F, a·1=a 10  a  0  F,  a -1  F, a·a -1 =1 1  a,b  F, a+b  F 2  a,b,c  F, (a+b)+c=a+(b+c) 3  a,b  F, a+b=b+a 4  0  F,  a  F, a+0=a 5  a  F,  -a  F, a+(-a)=0 11  a,b,c  F, a·(b+c)=a·b+a·c +,·,0, 1, -a and a -1 are only notations!

4 Finite Fields Def (finite field): A finite set F with two binary operations + (addition) and · (multiplication) is called a finite field if it is a field. Example: Z p denotes {0,1,...,p-1}. We define + and · as the addition and multiplication modulo p respectively. One can prove that (Z p,+,·) is a field iff p is prime. Throughout the presentations we’ll usually refer to Z p when we’ll mention finite fields.

5 Strings & Functions (1) Let  =  0  2...  n-1, where  i . We can describe the string  as a function  : {0…n-1}  , such that  i  (i) =  i. Let  =  0  2...  n-1, where  i . We can describe the string  as a function  : {0…n-1}  , such that  i  (i) =  i. Let f be a function f : D  R. Then f can be described as a string in R |D|, spelling f’s value on each point of D. Let f be a function f : D  R. Then f can be described as a string in R |D|, spelling f’s value on each point of D.

6 Strings & Functions - Example For example, let f be a function f : Z 5  Z 5, and let  = Z 5. 

8 Error Correcting Codes Def (encoding): An encoding E is a function E :  n   m, where m >> n. Def (code word): A code word w is a member of the image of the encoding E :  n   m. Def (  -code): An encoding E is an  -code if  n  (E(  ),E(  ))  1 - , where  (x,y) (the Hamming distance), denotes the fraction of entries on which x and y differ. Note that  :  m  m  R + is indeed a distance function, because it satisfies: (1)  x,y  m  (x,y)  0 and  (x,y)=0 iff x=y (2)  x,y  m  (x,y)=  (y,x) (3)  x,y,z  m  (x,z)  (x,y)+  (y,z)

9 Example – a simple error correcting code Consider the following code: for every  n, let E( ,k)=  ^k (the same word repeated k times, hence m=kn). ,4) E( ,4)

10 Example – a simple error correcting code Because every two words  n were different on at least one coordinate to begin with, the distance of the code (1-alpha) is:

11 Example – a simple error correcting code  E  1-  =1/n D R

12 Reed-Solomon codes We shall now use polynomials over finite fields to build a better generic code (larger distance between words) Note: A polynomial whose degree-bound is r is of degree at most r-1 ! Def (univariate polynomial): a polynomial in x over a field F is a function P:F  F, which can be written as for some series of coefficients a 0,...,a r-1  F. The natural number r is called the degree-bound of the polynomial.

13 Reed-Solomon codes Thm : Given x 0,y 0,...,x r-1,y r-1  F there is a single univariate polynomial P and degree-bound r, which satisfies  0  k  r-1 P(x k )=y k  Existence: We shall build such a polynomial using Lagrange’s formula: Proof :  Uniqueness: If there are two such polynomials: p1 & p2, then p1-p2 is a polynomial with degree-bound r, which has r roots. This contradicts the fundamental theorem of Algebra!

14 Reed-Solomon codes Let’s check the value of this polynomial in x = x t for some 0  t  r-1: Since the degree-bound of this polynomial is r, we in fact proved the correctness of the formula a-b denotes a+(-b) a/b denoted a(b -1 ) 0 ytyt

15 Reed-Solomon codes Def (the Reed-Solomon code): Set F to be the finite field Z p for some prime p, and assume for simplicity that  = F and m = p. Given  n, let E(  ) be the string of the function f  : F  F that satisfies: f  is the unique polynomial of degree-bound n such that f  (i) =  i for all 0  i  n-1.

16 Reed-Solomon codes E(  ) can be interpolated from any n points. E(  ) can be interpolated from any n points. Hence, for any , E(  ) and E(  ) may agree on at most n – 1 points. Hence, for any , E(  ) and E(  ) may agree on at most n – 1 points. Therefore, E is an (n – 1) / m – code, that is a code with distance of: Therefore, E is an (n – 1) / m – code, that is a code with distance of:

17 Reed-Solomon codes p = m = 5, n = 2  = 1, 2  = 3, 1 f  (x) = x + 1 f  (x) = 3x + 3 E(  ) = 1, 2, 3, 4, 0 E(  ) = 3, 1, 4, 2, 0

18 Strings & Functions (2) We can describe any string as a function f:H d  H (H is a finite field, d is a positive integer). We can describe any string as a function f:H d  H (H is a finite field, d is a positive integer). Given a  n we’ll achieve that by choosing H=Z q, where q is the smallest prime greater than |  |, and d=  log q n . Given a  n we’ll achieve that by choosing H=Z q, where q is the smallest prime greater than |  |, and d=  log q n .

19 Reed-Muller Codes Def (multivariate polynomial): Let F be a field and let d be some positive integer number. A function p:F d  F is a multivariate polynomial if it can be written as for some series of coefficients in the field. h is the degree-bound on each one of the variables. The total-degree of the polynomial is max{ i 0 +…+i d-1 : a i 0 … i d-1  0 }.

20 Error correcting Codes Home Assignment We’ve seen that Reed-Solomon codes using polynomials with degree-bound r have distance of: We’ve seen that Reed-Solomon codes using polynomials with degree-bound r have distance of: Next What is the distance of error correcting codes that use multivariate polynomials (over a finite field F, with degree-bound h in each variable and dimension d)? What is the distance of error correcting codes that use multivariate polynomials (over a finite field F, with degree-bound h in each variable and dimension d)?

21 Low Degree Extension (LDE) Def: (low degree extension): Let  : H d  H be a string (where H is some finite field). Given a finite field F, which is a superset of H, we define a low degree extension of  to F as a polynomial LDE  : F d  F which satisfies:  LDE  agrees with  on H d (extension).  The degree-bound of LDE  is |H| in each variable (low degree).

22 Low Degree Extension (LDE) Goal: To be able to find the value of an LDE in any point (set of points) of F d. LDE x LDE(x)

23 Low Degree Extension (LDE) x LDE(x) Straightforward approach: Represent the LDE by its coefficients. Alas, this will require access to |H| d variables, log|F| bits each, each time! the coefficients of the dimension- d, degree-bound- |H| LDE

24 Low Degree Extension (LDE) x LDE(x) the value of the LDE in every point in F d Second approach: Represent the LDE by its values in the points of F d. Now we only need access to one variable (log|F| bits) each time. But now we encounter a new problem: we cannot be sure the values we are given are consistent, i.e. correspond to a single dimension-d, degree- bound-|H| polynomial.

25 Consistent Readers In the upcoming lectures we’ll see how to build readers which: access only a small number of the variables each time. access only a small number of the variables each time. detect inconsistency with high probability. detect inconsistency with high probability.
