Elementary number theory and its applications

£15.99

Product description

Elementary number theory and its applications is the first text to integrate the classical material of an elementary number theory book with the important, modern applications of number theory to cryptography and computer science.

The author provides a careful and rigorous development of the subject. Both mathematics and computer science readers will be interested in the discussions of mathematical induction and recursion, algorithms and their computational complexity, computer arithmetic, binary and hexadecimal notation, primality testing, pseudorandom numbers and hashing functions, and for the first time in any number theory text, a discussion of the recent developments in the field of public-key cryptography.

The author is currently a member of the technical staff of AT&T Information Systems Laboratories (formerly part of the Bell Laboratories), and is formerly and Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Maine at Orono. He held previous positions at Ohio State University-Columbus and the University of Colorado-Boulder
