Book News Annotation:

The text has two objectives, the first of which is to cover algebraic function fields. Emphasis is on function fields over a finite constant field, leading into zeta functions and the Hasse-Weil theorem. Error correcting codes, used for the reliable transmission of information, are based on the mathematical construction by V.D. Goppa. Algebraic function fields provide the most elementary approach to Goppa's ideas, so the second objective is to give an introduction to Goppa's algebraic-geometric codes. Numerous examples are included.
