I am in the middle of preparing a seminar lecture about spherical codes and as the source literature, I started reading “Codes on Euclidean Spheres” by Thomas Ericson and Victor Zinoviev. I really like the subject which leads to this question:
I am looking for application of spherical codes outside of data transmission. Ericson and Zinoviev mentioned in the introduction that Spherical codes have many applications in physics or biology. Other papers support this claim.
But at this moment I only have found a dissertation which has a chapter about their application in Quantum cryptography. As you can see, I am very interested to find more of their application, but I cannot find any.
I hope there might be some people at Mathematics who may know a few papers/articles about applications of spherical codes.
I am very grateful for any help.
The thesis of C. Torezzan cites the following references for applications of spherical codes:
Numerical evaluation of integrals over spheres:
Applications in Chemistry:
Applications in Architecture:
