Title: Rank metric codes and their associated q-polymatroids.

Abstract: Rank metric codes are subspaces of the F_q vector space consisting of (m x n) matrices to which we associate the rank metric defined by d(M,N)=rk(M-N). The study of algebraic and combinatorial properties of codes has proven useful for linear network coding problems. One of the tools constructed to study those properties are q-polymatroids. We will go over the construction of q-polymatroids for rank metric codes and discuss the q-polymatroid associated to Maximum Rank Distance (MRD) codes.
