This text is for a course in cryptography for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Material is accessible to mathematically mature students having little background in number theory and computer programming. Core material is treated in the first eight chapters on areas such as classical cryptosystems, basic number theory, the RSA algorithm, and digital signatures. The remaining nine chapters cover optional topics including secret sharing schemes, games, and information theory. Appendices contain computer examples in Mathematica, Maple, and MATLAB. The text can be taught without computers.This text is for a course in cryptography for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
