  • Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction: A Handbook for the 21st Century

    By Aiden Bruen, Mario A. Forcinito

    Publish yr note: First released December thirty first 2004 via Wiley-Interscience

    Discover the 1st unified remedy of today's so much crucial details technologies-- Compressing, Encrypting, and Encoding

    With id robbery, cybercrime, and electronic dossier sharing proliferating in today's stressed out international, supplying secure and exact info transfers has develop into a paramount crisis. the problems and difficulties raised during this activity are encompassed inside 3 disciplines: cryptography, info idea, and error-correction. As know-how maintains to improve, those fields have converged at a pragmatic point, expanding the necessity for a unified therapy of those 3 cornerstones of the data age.

    Stressing the interconnections of the disciplines, Cryptography, info conception, and Error-Correction deals a whole, but obtainable account of the applied sciences shaping the twenty first century.

  • Lectures on Surfaces (Student Mathematical Library, Volume 46)

    By Anatole Katok, Vaughn Climenhaga

    Surfaces are one of the most typical and simply visualized mathematical gadgets, and their examine brings into concentration basic principles, ideas, and strategies from geometry, topology, complicated research, Morse thought, and team idea. whilst, lots of these notions look in a technically easier and extra image shape than of their common ``natural'' settings. the 1st, basically expository, bankruptcy introduces a few of the crucial actors--the around sphere, flat torus, Mobius strip, Klein bottle, elliptic airplane, etc.--as good as quite a few tools of describing surfaces, starting with the normal illustration via equations in third-dimensional house, continuing to parametric illustration, and likewise introducing the fewer intuitive, yet important for our reasons, illustration as issue areas. It concludes with a initial dialogue of the metric geometry of surfaces, and the linked isometry teams. next chapters introduce primary mathematical structures--topological, combinatorial (piecewise linear), tender, Riemannian (metric), and complex--in the categorical context of surfaces. the focus of the ebook is the Euler attribute, which appears to be like in lots of diverse guises and ties jointly innovations from combinatorics, algebraic topology, Morse conception, traditional differential equations, and Riemannian geometry. The repeated visual appeal of the Euler attribute offers either a unifying subject and a strong representation of the proposal of an invariant in all these theories. The assumed heritage is the traditional calculus series, a few linear algebra, and rudiments of ODE and actual research. All notions are brought and mentioned, and almost all effects proved, in response to this historical past. This publication is end result of the the MASS path in geometry within the fall semester of 2007.
