SESEM 2004 Advanced Topics: Codes and Cryptology

- The easiest way to reach me is always via email: rogness@math.umn.edu
- Generally speaking, we'll have homework every day. We'll also have a final exam and either one or two midterms. (Your choice, as a class!) We'll work on individual projects later on during the class; some of the homework load will be reduced so that you can finish your projects.

- Paul Garrett's Crypto Page. (This is the author of our textbook.)
You can read his lecture slides and see some sample quizzes. He also has a few interactive
applets available:
- Shift Cipher
- Affine Cipher
- ...and others; see the page!

- Tom Linton's Crypto Page. This is another instructor teaching out of Garrett's book. Pay particular attention to the java applets: shift cipher, affine cipher, letter frequency, digram frequency, Vigenere encryption and decryption, Kasiski attack, and more. His applets are the reason I
*stopped*writing applets for this class. - Here are yet more cryptology tools. (Hmm... these may not be functional)
- Here's a particularly nice Letter Frequency Analysis applet. There's also Affine Cipher and RSA applets here.
