Title:Stream Ciphers [electronic resource]

Note:In cryptography, ciphers is the technical term for encryption and decryption algorithms. They are an important sub-family that features high speed and easy implementation and are an essential part of wireless internet and mobilephones. Unlike block ciphers, stream ciphers work on single bits or single words and need to maintain an internal state to change the cipher at each step. Typically stream ciphers can reach higher speeds than block ciphers but theycan be more vulnerable to attack. Here, mathe matics comes into play. Number theory, algebra and statistics are the key to a better understanding of stream ciphers and essential for an informed decision on their safety. Since thetheory is less developed, stream ciphers are often skipped in books on cryptography. This book fills this gap. It covers the mathematics of stream ciphers and its history, and also discusses many modern examples and their robustnessagainst attacks. Part I covers linear feedback shift registers, non-linear combinations of LF SRs, algebraic attacks and irregular clocked shift registers. Part II studies some special ciphers including the security of mobile phones,RC4 and related ciphers, the eStream project and the blum-blum-shub generator and related ciphers. Stream Ciphers r equires basic knowledge of algebra and linear algebra, combinatorics and probability theory and programming.Appendices in Part III help the reader with the more complicated subjects and provides the mathematical background needed. It covers, for example, complexity, number theory, finite fields, statistics, combinatorics. Stream Ciphersconcludes with exercises and solutions and is directed towards advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics and computer science

Title:Hunting and Imaging Comets [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Mobberley
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Of all the objects visible in the night sky, it is the brightest comets that have most fascinated amateur astronomers and alarmed the human population. No other objects can stretch as far across the sky as the tail of a trulygreat comet, or be as eas ily visible as a zero-magnitude broom star. In recent times amateur astronomers have made some surprising discoveries, including the comets Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake, while also playing a critical role indetecting the comets that hit Jupiter in 1994 and 200 9. It was also an amateur astronomerthat first spotted the dazzling October 2007 outburst of 17P/Holmes. Discovering a comet has always been the greatest prize for the amateurastronomer the chance to truly write your name across the sky. Remarkably, desp ite routine professional CCD surveys, many amateurs worldwide still discover comets in the 21st century. In Hunting and Imaging Comets MartinMobberley, an active comet imager himself, explains how non-professionals have achieved such success. This book de scribes in precise detail how amateur astronomers can find comets and capture spectacular images of them using moderntelescopes, CCDs, and digital SLRs. Mobberley also explains how computer software can be used to measure the positions and brightness magn itudes of comets to a professional standard and how to submit those scientific results to theastronomical community. If you want to search for new comets, or simply observe known ones, this is the book for you!
