## Elliptic Curves: Number Theory and Cryptography (Hardback)"Elliptic curves have played an increasingly important role in number theory and relate fields over the last several decades, most notably in areas such as cryptography, factorization, and the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. However, most books on the subject assume a rather high level of mathematical sophistication, an few are truly accessible to senior undergraduate or beginning graduate students. Assuming only a modest background in elementary number theory, groups, and fields, ## $79.95 |

## Description

Continued from the back cover: “The author introduces elliptic curves over finite fields nearly in the treatment, leading readers directly to the intriguing cryptographic applications, but the book is structured so that readers can explore the number theoretic aspects independently if desired.

By side-stepping algebraic geometry in favor of an approach based on basic formulas, this book clearly demonstrates how elliptic curves are used and opens the doors to higher-level studies. *Elliptic Curves* offers a solid introduction to the mathematics and applications of elliptic curves that well prepares its readers to tackle more advanced problems in cryptography and number theory.”

"Starting in the fall of 1986, I combined my interests in number theory and history by teaching a one-year course in number theory from a historical prospective. The course used historical highlights to show the development of various topics, and I included some discussion about the lives of famous number theorists. My lecture notes for the course turned into a more formal set of notes, which turned into this book. Both the spirit and organization of material in the book remain those of my original lectures." — Jay R. Goldman, author, in the Preface
