In theFall 2013 term I am 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 will develop basic concepts in number theory and investigate applications to the exciting field of secure communications and cryptosystems. We will look at recent developments in Public Key Cryptography, especially RSA. The subject of Cryptology is further developed in MATH 408, offered in the spring semester. 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.
MATH 321 - Fundamentals of Analysis I. This course is an introduction to abstract mathematical reasoning in the context of analysis in Euclidean space. Topics include formal reasoning, sets and functions, and the number systems; infinite sequences and series; Cauchy sequences and convergence; the elementary topology of point sets. We will be using a textbook entitled, "Elements of Real Analysis", by David A. Sprecher, and a textbook entitled, "Real Mathematical Analysis", by Charles Chapman Pugh. 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.
In the Spring I may teach:
