Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


By using results and techniques from commutative algebra such as the vanishing ideal of a set of points, its a-invariant, the Hilbert polynomial and series, as well as finite free resolutions and the canonical module, some results about Reed-Muller codes defined on a zero-dimensional complete intersection in the n-projective dimensional space are given. Several examples of this class of codes are presented in order to illustrate the ideas.
