An Exploration of Mathematical Applications in Cryptography
Kosek, Amy

2015, Master of Mathematical Sciences, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
Modern cryptography relies heavily on concepts from mathematics. In this thesis we will be discussing several cryptographic ciphers and discovering the mathematical applications which can be found by exploring them. This paper is intended to be accessible to undergraduate or graduate students as a supplement to a course in number theory or modern algebra. The structure of the paper also lends itself to be accessible to a person interested in learning about mathematics in cryptography on their own, since we will always give a review of the background material which will be needed before delving into the cryptographic ciphers.
