Summary "Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction offers a complete, yet accessible account of the technologies shaping the 21st century. This book contains the most up-to-date, detailed, and balanced treatment available on these subjects. The authors draw on their experience both in the classroom and in industry, giving the book's material and presentation a unique real-world orientation." "With its reader-friendly style and interdisciplinary emphasis, Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction serves as both a teaching text and a tool for self-learning. The chapter structure allows for anyone with a high school mathematics education to gain a strong conceptual understanding, and provides higher-level students with more mathematically advanced topics. The authors clearly map out paths through the book for readers of all levels to maximize their learning." "Cryptography, Information Theory, and Error-Correction is an in-depth text for both graduate and undergraduate students of mathematics, computer science, and engineering. It is also an authoritative overview of IT professionals, statisticians, mathematicians, computer scientists, electrical engineers, entrepreneurs and the generally curious."--BOOK JACKET
