This book constitutes the strictly refereed proceedings of the 12th International Symposium on Applied Algebra, Algebraic Algorithms and Error-Correcting Codes, AAECC-12, held in Toulouse, France, June 1997. The 27 revised full papers presented were carefully selected by the program committee for inclusion in the volume. The papers address a broad range of current issues in coding theory and computer algebra spanning polynomials, factorization, commutative algebra, real geometry, group theory, etc. on the mathematical side as well as software systems, telecommunication, complexity theory, compression, signal processing, etc. on the computer science and engineering side.
