In the Fall 2016 term I am be teaching::

MATH 303 - Introduction to Number Theory and Cryptology.
We will be using a textbook entitled, "**A Friendly
Introduction to Number Theory, 4th Edition", by Joseph H. Silverman**.
This course develops basic concepts in number theory and investigates applications
to the exciting field of secure communications and cryptosystems.

In Spring 2017 I will be teaching:

MATH 302 - Department Seminar. a seminar devoted to understanding the formulation and solution of mathematical problems. We will study, from a mathematical as well as a historical viewpoint, how mathematics advances as a discipline--what mathematicians do. The course will largely be in a seminar format. We will be using the book, "Mathematics and Its History, ThirdEdition", by John Stillwell.

MATH 408 - Mathematical Cryptology. We will use the
textbook, "**An Introduction to Mathematical Cryptography**",
by Jeffrey Hoffstein, Jill Pipher, and Joseph Silverman. We will also use references
available over the internet: in particular, the Handbook
of Applied Cryptography by Alfred J. Menezes, Paul C. van Oorschot and Scott
A. Vanstone. If you have questions, you may contact me by
e-mail. I check my mail regularly, so this is an excellent way to reach
me, and I am always happy to hear from you.
