About this item

This textbook is designed for a two-semester course, such as a course in mathematical coding theory or cryptology. Because only a few exercises ask students to produce computer code, the text can be used in courses in which advanced technology is not incorporated. The text begins with a review of required math, such as permutation groups, rings and Euclidian domains, and finite fields with Maple and MATLAB. Subsequent chapters cover areas including block designs, error-correcting codes, Reed-Solomon codes, algebraic cryptography, RSA ciphers, and graph theory. Chapter exercises, hints, and answers are included. This third edition contains new applications, a new discussion of two-message problem, and a new chapter on symmetry in Western music. This edition’s MATLAB sections are updated to reflect MATLAB’s adoption of the MuPAD computer algebra system. This edition also contains 100 new exercises with a solutions manual now available.

This book provides an in-depth introduction to real-world abstract algebraic problems. Chapters examine the prerequisite advanced mathematics needed, examine block designs, coding theory, and cryptography while the final chapters cover counting techniques, including Pólya's and Burnside's theorems. Eliminating the need for heavy number crunching, sophisticated mathematical software packages open the door to areas like cryptography, coding theory, and combinatorics that are dependent on abstract algebra. This book explores these topics and shows how to apply the software programs to abstract algebra and its related fields.
