Student of mathematics and computer science. At a research level, interested in pseudorandomness, coding theory, and algebraic methods in theoretical computer science. More generally, interested in combinatorics, algebra and geometry. Hope to be more active in answering questions rather than just asking.

comment What is the connection between Weil's character bound and Riemann Hypothesis over finite fields
So I get the impression that one needs to wade into a lot more involved theory to "see" the connection between character sums and rational points on curves. I am a coding theorist rather than a number theorist. Would you recommend any references just to get some working intuition and big picture connections, without getting into the nitty-gritties (which I do want to explore slowly at my own pace)? Thanks.

comment “Almost orthogonalizing” matrices using a signature matrix
I just realized that too. I have edited the question to provide some context. Hope it helps.
