Information Theory

Information Theory (3) The processing, storage, and communication of information, addressing two fundamental questions in the communication and storage of information, namely what are the limits on information compression (the entropy) and what is the best rate of information (the channel capacity). This course develops the mathematical foundations of information theory, including entropy and mutual information, partitioning and equipartitioning, data representation and compression, channel capacity, and dealing with distortion and noise. Meets with MATH 631-002.

Cryptography

Cryptography (3) This course introduces fundamental mathematical ideas that are central to cryptography and related fields. The course covers how these ideas have been employed to create algorithms to encrypt information and analyzes the security and efficiency of these algorithms. The approach involves a blend of theoretical analysis and hands-on exploration and implementation. Prerequisite: MATH-403. Meets with MATH-616 001.
