A course in number theory and cryptography by Neal Koblitz( Book )

57 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to arithmetic topics, both ancient and modern, that have been at the center of interest in applications of number theory, particularly in cryptography. No background in algebra or number theory is assumed, and the book begins with a discussion of the basic number theory that is needed. The approach taken is algorithmic, emphasizing estimates of the efficiency of the techniques that arise from the theory. A special feature is the inclusion of recent application of the theory of elliptic curves. Extensive exercises and careful answers have been included in all of the chapters. Because number theory and cryptography are fast-moving fields, this new edition contains substantial revisions and updated references
Introduction to elliptic curves and modular forms by Neal Koblitz( Book )

42 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theory of elliptic curves and modular forms provides a fruitful meeting ground for such diverse areas as number theory, complex analysis, algebraic geometry, and representation theory. This book starts out with a problem from elementary number theory and proceeds to lead its reader into the modern theory, covering such topics as the Hasse-Weil L-function and the conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer. The second edition of this text includes an updated bibliography indicating the latest, dramatic changes in the direction of proving the Birch and Swinnerton conjecture. It also discusses the current state of knowledge of elliptic curves."--Page 4 de la couverture
P-adic numbers, p-adic analysis, and zeta-functions by Neal Koblitz( Book )

47 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These lecture notes are intended as an introduction to p-adic analysis on the elementary level. For this reason they presuppose as little background as possi ble. Besides about three semesters of calculus, I presume some slight exposure to more abstract mathematics, to the extent that the student won't have an adverse reaction to matrices with entries in a field other than the real numbers, field extensions of the rational numbers, or the notion of a continuous map of topolog ical spaces. The purpose of this book is twofold: to develop some basic ideas of p-adic analysis, and to present two striking applications which, it is hoped, can be as effective pedagogically as they were historically in stimulating interest in the field. The first of these applications is presented in Chapter II, since it only requires the most elementary properties of Q ; this is Mazur's construction by p means of p-adic integration of the Kubota-Leopoldtp-adic zeta-function, which "p-adically interpolates" the values of the Riemann zeta-function at the negative odd integers. My treatment is based on Mazur's Bourbaki notes (unpublished)
Algebraic aspects of cryptography by Neal Koblitz( Book )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a textbook for a course (or self-instruction) in cryptography with emphasis on algebraic methods. The first half of the book is a self-contained informal introduction to areas of algebra, number theory, and computer science that are used in cryptography. Most of the material in the second half - "hidden monomial" systems, combinatorial-algebraic systems, and hyperelliptic systems - has not previously appeared in monograph form. The Appendix by Menezes, Wu, and Zuccherato gives an elementary treatment of hyperelliptic curves. This book is intended for graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and scientists working in various fields of data security. From the reviews: " ... This is a textbook in cryptography with emphasis on algebraic methods. It is supported by many exercises (with answers) making it appropriate for a course in mathematics or computer science. ... Overall, this is an excellent expository text, and will be very useful to both the student and researcher." M.V.D. Burmester, Mathematical Reviews 2002 " ... I think this book is a very inspiring book on cryptography. It goes beyond the traditional topics (most of the cryptosystems presented here are first time in a textbook, some of Patarin's work is not published yet). This way the reader has the feeling how easy to suggest a cryptosystem, how easy to break a safe looking system and hence how hard to trust one. The interested readers are forced to think together with their researchers and feel the joy of discovering new ideas. At the same time the importance of "hardcore" mathematics is emphasized and hopefully some application driven students will be motivated to study theory." P. Hajnal, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum 64.1998 " ... Overall, the book is highly recommended to everyone who has the requisite mathematical sophistication." E. Leiss, Computing Reviews 1998

P-adic analysis : a short course on recent work by Neal Koblitz( Book )

20 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to recent work in p-adic analysis and number theory will make accessible to a relatively general audience the efforts of a number of mathematicians over the last five years. After reviewing the basics (the construction of p-adic numbers and the p-adic analog of the complex number field, power series and Newton polygons), the author develops the properties of p-adic Dirichlet L-series using p-adic measures and integration. p-adic gamma functions are introduced, and their relationship to L-series is explored. Analogies with the corresponding complex analytic case are stressed

A course in mathematical logic for mathematicians by I︠U︡. I Manin( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Course in Mathematical Logic for Mathematicians, Second Edition offers a straightforward introduction to modern mathematical logic that will appeal to the intuition of working mathematicians. The book begins with an elementary introduction to formal languages and proceeds to a discussion of proof theory. It then presents several highlights of 20th century mathematical logic, including theorems of Godel and Tarski, and Cohen's theorem on the independence of the continuum hypothesis. A unique feature of the text is a discussion of quantum logic." "The exposition then moves to a discussion of computability theory that is based on the notion of recursive functions and stresses number-theoretic connections. The text presents a complete proof of the theorem of Davis-Putnam-Robinson-Matiyasevich as well as a proof of Higman's theorem on recursive groups. Kolmogorov complexity is also treated"--Jacket

Gauge field theory and complex geometry by I︠U︡. I Manin( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the reviews: " ... focused mainly on complex differential geometry and holomorphic bundle theory. This is a powerful book, written by a very distinguished contributor to the field" (Contemporary Physics)"the book provides a large amount of background for current research across a spectrum of field. ... requires effort to read but it is worthwhile and rewarding" (New Zealand Math. Soc. Newsletter) " The contents are highly technical and the pace of the exposition is quite fast. Manin is an outstanding mathematician, and writer as well, perfectly at ease in the most abstract and complex situation. With such a guide the reader will be generously rewarded!" (Physicalia) This new edition includes an Appendix on developments of the last 10 years, by S. Merkulov
A course in mathematical logic by I︠U︡. I Manin( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a text of mathematical logic on a sophisticated level, presenting the reader with several of the most significant discoveries of the last 10 to 15 years, including the independence of the continuum hypothesis, the Diophantine nature of enumerable sets and the impossibility of finding an algorithmic solution for certain problems. The book contains the first textbook presentation of Matijasevic's result. The central notions are provability and computability; the emphasis of the presentation is on aspects of the theory which are of interest to the working mathematician. Many of the approaches and topics covered are not standard parts of logic courses; they include a discussion of the logic of quantum mechanics, Goedel's constructible sets as a sub-class of von Neumann's universe, the Kolmogorov theory of complexity. Feferman's theorem on Goedel formulas as axioms and Highman's theorem on groups defined by enumerable sets of generators and relations. A number of informal digressions concerned with psychology, linguistics, and common sense logic should interest students of the philosophy of science or the humanities

Elliptic curve public key cryptosystems by A. J Menezes( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elliptic curves have been intensively studied in algebraic geometry and number theory. In recent years they have been used in devising efficient algorithms for factoring integers and primality proving, and in the construction of public key cryptosystems. Elliptic Curve Public Key Cryptosystems provides an up-to-date and self-contained treatment of elliptic curve-based public key cryptology. Elliptic curve cryptosystems potentially provide equivalent security to the existing public key schemes, but with shorter key lengths. Having short key lengths means smaller bandwidth and memory requirements and can be a crucial factor in some applications, for example the design of smart card systems. The book examines various issues which arise in the secure and efficient implementation of elliptic curve systems. Elliptic Curve Public Key Cryptosystems is a valuable reference resource for researchers in academia, government and industry who are concerned with issues of data security. Because of the comprehensive treatment, the book is also suitable for use as a text for advanced courses on the subject
