Codes on Euclidean spheres

Codes on 3-dimensional Euclidean spheres have been studied since antiquity. The five Platonic solids were described already by Euclid. The so called kissing number problem was the subject of a famous discussion between Newton and Gregory as early as 1694. In recent times codes on spheres in higher dimensions have been intensively studied in connection with systems for efficient transmission of information over noisy channels. We offer a brief introduction to the topic, describe the connection to telecommunication engineering, and give a brief overview of the recent development.
