In Fall 2014 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 develops basic concepts in number theory and investigates applications to the exciting field of secure communications and cryptosystems.
In the Spring 2014 term I will teach:
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.
