Description


Building on the success of the first edition, An Introduction to Number Theory with Cryptography, Second Edition, increases coverage of the popular and important topic of cryptography, integrating it with traditional topics in number theory.

The authors have written the text in an engaging style to reflect number theory's increasing popularity. The book is designed to be used by sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduates, but it is also accessible to advanced high school students and is appropriate for independent study. It includes a few more advanced topics for students who wish to explore beyond the traditional curriculum.

Features of the second edition include

Over 800 exercises, projects, and computer explorations

Increased coverage of cryptography, including Vigenere, Stream, Transposition, and Block ciphers, along with RSA and discrete log-based systems

"Check Your Understanding" questions for instant feedback to students

New Appendices on "What is a proof?" and on Matrices

Select basic (pre-RSA) cryptography now placed in an earlier chapter so that the topic can be covered right after the basic material on congruences

Answers and hints for odd-numbered problems
