*Network Coding and Algebra*

Network coding has been appreciated in engineering since it has multiple applications, for instance, satellite communication, data storage, etc. For some special networks, algorithms for scalar and vector linear coding solutions have been provided. However, linear coding is not efficient for some networks. We suggest using techniques from group theory to give a more general picture of network coding and provide a new coding solution.
