Complexity and Cryptography : An Introduction

This book originated in a well-established yet constantly evolving course on
Complexity and Cryptography which we have both given to final year Mathematics
undergraduates at Oxford for many years. It has also formed part of an
M.Sc. course on Mathematics and the Foundations of Computer Science, and
has been the basis for a more recent course on Randomness and Complexity
for the same groups of students.

One of the main motivations for setting up the course was to give mathematicians,
who traditionally meet little in the way of algorithms, a taste for the
beauty and importance of the subject. Early on in the book the reader will have
gained sufficient background to understand what is now regarded as one of the
top ten major open questions of this century, namely the P = NP question. At
the same time the student is exposed to the mathematics underlying the security
of cryptosystems which are now an integral part of the modern ‘email age’.
Although this book provides an introduction to many of the key topics in
complexity theory and cryptography, we have not attempted to write a comprehensive
text. Obvious omissions include cryptanalysis, elliptic curve cryptography,
quantum cryptography and quantum computing. These omissions have
allowed us to keep the mathematical prerequisites to a minimum.
Throughout the text the emphasis is on explaining the main ideas and proving
the mathematical results rigorously. Thus we have not given every result in
complete generality.

The exercises at the end of many sections of the book are in general meant to
be routine and are to be used as a check on the understanding of the preceding
principle; the problems at the end of each chapter are often harder.

Embracing Uncertainty: The Essence of Leadership
Embracing Uncertainty: The Essence of Leadership
This book offers a radically different approach from the clever, but overly simplistic and frequently misleading formulas for success offered by most self-help business literature. The authors believe that in today's turbulent competitive environment it is necessary to embrace uncertainty and set more realistic expectations, while creating greater...
Mathematics As a Science of Patterns
Mathematics As a Science of Patterns
This book expounds a system of ideas about the nature of mathematics which Michael Resnik has been elaborating for a number of years. In calling mathematics a science he implies that it has a factual subject-matter and that mathematical knowledge is on a par with other scientific knowledge; in calling it a science of patterns he expresses his...

Pro SharePoint 2010 Governance (Professional Apress)

Governance is the process of creating policies and rules and assigning roles and responsibilities to make a system work properly. Even if your attitude is “Good Government is Less Government,” very few of us

would want to have no government. In short, governance is the difference between order and chaos.

Upgrading Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to Microsoft Visual Basic .NET

Many articles have appeared in the press about Visual Basic .NET being radically different from prior versions of Visual Basic. Unfortunately, most of the articles leave you with more questions than answers. What exactly are the changes in Visual Basic .NET? Will it be possible to upgrade existing applications? Why does it break...
