Topics in Geometry, Coding Theory and Cryptography (Algebra and Applications)
The purpose of this reviewarticle is to serve as an introduction and at the same time, as an invitation to the theory of towers of function fields over finite fields. More specifically, we treat here the case of explicit towers; i.e., towers where the function fields are given by explicit equations. The asymptotic behaviour of the genus and of the...
