MA464 (Version: 2013 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
MA464 APPLIED ALGEBRA W/ CRYPTOLOGY 2013 2 Mathematical Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=3.0)
SCOPE
We study the underlying algebra of computer science structures as well as sets, set functions, Boolean algebra, finite state machines, groups, and modular arithmetic. We introduce and study mathematical aspects of cryptology with an emphasis on cryptanalysis of encryption ciphers. We study early paper-and-pencil systems through current computer algorithms for encryption. We employ algebraic principles in both design and analysis of encryption systems, be it matrix, linear feedback shift register sequence, or linear congruential random number generator sequence efforts. Further, we investigate the mathematics of breaking machine ciphers and of designing modern public-key crypto systems.
