MATH 13187-1: Number Theory and Cryptography

Instructor: Sam Evens

We will learn about number theory and some applications to cryptography. Number theory is the study of the integers, and we will study a range of topics from number theory, including prime numbers and modular arithmetic. We will also consider applications of number theory to secure communication. I plan to run the class in a largely interactive format, so that students will work together to answer questions designed to help them learn the concepts.
