**A Computational Introduction to Number Theory and Algebra**

by Victor Shoup

**Publisher**: Cambridge University Press 2005**ISBN/ASIN**: 0521851548**ISBN-13**: 9780521851541**Number of pages**: 534

**Description**:

Number theory and algebra play an increasingly significant role in computing and communications, as evidenced by the striking applications of these subjects to such fields as cryptography and coding theory. This introductory book emphasises algorithms and applications, such as cryptography and error correcting codes, and is accessible to a broad audience. The mathematical prerequisites are minimal: nothing beyond material in a typical undergraduate course in calculus is presumed, other than some experience in doing proofs - everything else is developed from scratch.
