Title:Number Theory in Science and Communication [electronic resource] : With Applications in Cryptography, Physics, Digital Information, Computing, and Self-Similarity
Author(s): Manfred Schroeder
Date:2009
Edition:Fifth Edition
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Number Theory in Science and Communication is a well-known introduction for non-mathematicians to this fascinating and useful branch of applied mathematics . It stresses intuitive understanding rather than abstract theory andhighlights important conc epts such as continued fractions, the golden ratio, quadratic residues and Chinese remainders, trapdoor functions, pseudoprimes and primitive elements. Their applications to problems in the real world are oneof the main themes of the book. This revised fi fth edition is augmented by recent advances in coding theory, permutations and derangements and a chapter in quantum cryptography. From reviews of earlier editions I continue to find[Schroeders] Number Theory a goldmine of valuable information. It is a m arvellous book, in touch with the most recent applications of number theory and written with great clarity and humor. Philip Morrison (Scientific American)A light-hearted and readable volume with a wide range of applications to which the author has been a productive contributor useful mathematics outside the formalities of theorem and proof. Martin Gardner
