Editorial Reviews Review

Dominic Welsh's Codes and Cryptography takes a wide approach and explores the mathematical foundations of this field, considering information theory, entropy, and the encoding of messages. From these roots in information and communication theory, Welsh then moves on to topics in cryptography, including public key cryptography and digital signatures. The text also offers practice exercises along with their solutions.

There is plenty of mathematics here, making this a book for specialists (a result of the author's experience teaching undergraduates at Oxford). Between the formulas, though, the author conveys a genuine enthusiasm for his subject and for the history of cryptography. The text includes an extensive bibliography of sources in the field.


' This excellent book can be strongly recommended... it is so well written that it could be read solely for interest and enjoyment.' Times Higher Educ. Supplement

'This authoritative book has a well structured approach. ...essential reading for the engineer concerned with safe-guarding as well as communicating information.' IEE Review

' an exciting introduction to codes and cryptography,but also manages to provide clear introductory accounts to a number of vitally important and closely related mathematical topics the most significant of which is computational complexity...It is surprising that a book can contain such a high
rate of information per page and still be readable...This excellent book can be strongly recommended to anyone with the appropriate mathematical background.'Times Higher Education Supplement
