Title: Algebraic Curves with Many Points over Finite Fields

Abstract: Algebraic curves with many points over finite fields have proven useful for creating good error-correcting codes and designing efficient algorithms for multiplication in finite fields. In this talk, I will discuss these applications, and describe the construction of two families of curves which meet the Hasse-Weil bound.
