Course Catalogue Description

Courses not listed in catalogue. Contents vary from year to year according to the interest of students and instructor in charge.

Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to introduce the students to some recent results on hash functions, authentication codes, connections with coding theory, function fields and cryptography. The emphasis will be on new constructions of hash functions and authentication schemes, and their relations with nonlinearity and function fields.

Course Learning Outcomes

Tentative (Weekly) Outline

Algebra-Geometric construction of hash functions and authentication codes, highly nonlinear mappings and their relations with exponential sums and algebraic function fields.
