  Topics in Geometry, Coding Theory and Cryptography (Algebra and Applications)The purpose of this reviewarticle is to serve as an introduction and at the same time, as an invitation to the theory of towers of function fields over finite fields. More specifically, we treat here the case of explicit towers; i.e., towers where the function fields are given by explicit equations. The asymptotic behaviour of the genus and of the...   

Quantum Invariants: A Study of Knot, 3Manifolds, and Their SetsOhtsuk's book is very readable, for he makes an attempt to present the material as straightforward as possible.  Mathematical Reviews, 2003
This is a nicely written and useful book....presenting a lot of material ordered by a clear guiding line.  Mathematics Abstracts, 2002
This book provides...   Automatic Sequences: Theory, Applications, Generalizations
Combining concepts of mathematics and computer science, this book is about the sequences of symbols that can be generated by simple models of computation called "finite automata". Suitable for graduate students or advanced undergraduates, it starts from elementary principles and develops the basic theory. The study then progresses...   Making, Breaking Codes: Introduction to Cryptology
This book is an introduction to modern ideas in cryptology and how to employ
these ideas. It includes the relevant material on number theory, probability, and
abstract algebra, in addition to descriptions of ideas about algorithms and com
plexity theory. Three somewhat different terms appear in the discussion of secure
communications...
