## About these proceedings

### Introduction

This volume is the proceedings of the 10th International
Symposium on Applied Algebra, Algebraic Algorithms and
Error-Correcting Codes (AAECC 10),held in Puerto Rico, May
1993.
The aim of the AAECC meetings is to attract high-level
research papers and to encourage cross-fertilization among
different areas which share the use of algebraic methods and
techniques for applications in the sciences of computing,
communications, and engineering.
The AAECC symposia are mainly devoted to research in coding
theory and computer algebra. The theoryof error-correcting
codes deals with the transmission of information in the
presence of noise. Coding is the systematic use of
redundancy in theformation of the messages to be sent so as
to enable the recovery of the information present originally
after it has been corrupted by (not too much)noise.
Computer algebra is devoted to the investigation of
algorithms, computational methods, software systems and
computer languages, oriented to scientific computations
performed on exact and often symbolic data, by manipulating
formal expressions by means of the algebraic rules they
satisfy. Questions of complexity and cryptography are
naturally linked with both coding theory and computer
algebra and represent an important share of the area covered
by AAECC.
