The course covers the modern methods of cryptography, which form the basis for secure electronic communication, and methods to decrypt them. The focus will be on mathematical foundations in number theory, algebraic geometry and statistics, and how these are used in cryptography. The course is of interest for those who work with security aspects in electronic communication, but also for those who want to see one of the more spectacular modern applications of mathematics.

Subject

Mathematics

As a mathematical theory always implies that certain conclusions hold under certain given conditions, it can in principle say nothing about the physical reality. None the less mathematics has become an indispensable tool for a large number of subjects like astronomy, physics, chemistry, statistics and the technical sciences and in later times also for economy, biology, various social sciences and computor science. The role of mathematics in the applied sciences is both to supply notions for exact and adequate formulations of empirical laws but also from these laws to derive consequences, which can be used to find better models of the reality one has to describe. These tasks have lately become more important. Mathematics is in continual progress by intensive international research, new theories are created and already existing theories are simplified and augmented.
