In Fall 2023 I am teaching:

MATH 303 - Introduction to Number Theory and Cryptology.
We will be using a textbook entitled, "**A Friendly
Introduction to Number Theory, 4th Edition, by Joseph H. Silverman**."
This course will develop basic concepts in number theory and investigate applications
to the exciting field of secure communications and cryptosystems. If you have
questions, you may contact me by e-mail.
I check my mail regularly, so this is an excellent way to reach me, and I am
always happy to hear from you. The details can be found on Canvas.

MATH 324
- Complex Analysis. MATH 324 is a one-semester,
three credit-hour course in functions of one complex variable. Topics to be
covered include: complex numbers and their properties; analytic functions of
a complex variable, described in four ways -- through the Cauchy-Riemann equations,
complex differentiation, complex integration, and power series; elementary functions;
contour integrals; Taylor and Laurent series; singularities and residues. As
time permits, we will touch on conformal mapping. We will use the textbook,
"**Fundamentals of Complex Analysis with Applications
to Engineering and Science**", Third Edition, by E.B. Saff and
A.D. Snider. If you have questions, you may contact me
by e-mail. I check my mail regularly,
so this is an excellent way to reach me, and I am always happy to hear from
you.

In Spring 2024 I am teaching:

MATH 361-Geometry is a one-semester, three credit-hour
course in geometry. We will be using a textbook entitled, "**Numbers
and Geometry," by John Stillwell**.The
prerequisite for the course in MATH 122 or its equivalent. This course satisfies
the SAGES department seminar requirement.

MATH 408 - Mathematical Cryptology. We will use the textbook, "**An
Introduction to Mathematical Cryptography, 2nd Edition 2014**",
by Jeffrey Hoffstein, Jill Pipher, and Joseph Silverman. We will also use references
available over the internet: in particular, the Handbook
of Applied Cryptography by Alfred J. Menezes, Paul C. van Oorschot and Scott
A. Vanstone. If you have questions, you may contact me by
e-mail. I check my mail regularly, so this is an excellent way to reach
me, and I am always happy to hear from you.
