Applied Algebra: Codes, Ciphers and Discrete Algorithms, Second Edition (Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications)

Buy

Using mathematical tools from number theory and finite fields, Applied Algebra: Codes, Ciphers, and Discrete Algorithms, Second Edition presents practical methods for solving problems in data security and data integrity. It is designed for an applied algebra course for students who have had prior classes in abstract or linear algebra. While the content has been reworked and improved, this edition continues to cover many algorithms that arise in cryptography and error-control codes.

New to the Second Edition

  • A CD-ROM containing an interactive version of the book that is powered by Scientific Notebook®, a mathematical word processor and easy-to-use computer algebra system
  • New appendix that reviews prerequisite topics in algebra and number theory
  • Double the number of exercises

Instead of a general study on finite groups, the book considers finite groups of permutations and develops just enough of the theory of finite fields to facilitate construction of the fields used for error-control codes and the Advanced Encryption Standard. It also deals with integers and polynomials. Explaining the mathematics as needed, this text thoroughly explores how mathematical techniques can be used to solve practical problems.

Digraphs: Theory, Algorithms and Applications
Digraphs: Theory, Algorithms and Applications
The study of directed graphs has developed enormously over recent decades, yet no book covers more than a tiny fraction of the results from more than 3000 research articles on the topic. Digraphs is the first book to present a unified and comprehensive survey of the subject. In addition to covering the theoretical aspects,...

The History of Terrorism: From Antiquity to al Qaeda
This authoritative work provides an essential perspective on terrorism by offering a rare opportunity for analysis and reflection at a time of ongoing violence, chilling threats, and renewed reprisals. In it, some of the best international specialists working on the subject today examine terrorism's long and complex history from antiquity to the...
Topology-based Methods in Visualization (Mathematics and Visualization)
Topology-based Methods in Visualization (Mathematics and Visualization)
Enabling insight into large and complex datasets is a prevalent theme in visualization research for which different approaches are pursued.

Topology-based methods are built on the idea of abstracting characteristic structures such as the topological skeleton from the data and to construct the visualizations accordingly. There are currently new...
