Apple vs Samsung: a Mathematical Battle

Apple and Samsung have been fighting patent battles around the world. Come learn about the mathematics at the heart of one of these battles, the error correcting codes used in 3G communication. We will give a gentle introduction to coding theory, explain why this caused a legal battle, and we will conclude by describing why President Obama ultimately vetoed the ruling by the court (the first time a president had used that veto power in nearly 40 years!).
