  Information theory and coding: solved problems
Ivaniš P., Drajić D.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 517 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319493-69-5)

This book differs from the many other textbooks on information and coding theory in that it provides a plentitude of examples, presented in the form of solved problems. Whereas other books may offer a more rigorous mathematical treatment, this boo...

   Introducing Ethereum and Solidity: foundations of cryptocurrency and blockchain programming for beginners
Dannen C.,  Apress, New York, NY, 2017. 185 pp. Type: Book (978-1-484225-34-9)

Bitcoin and other blockchain variants like Ethereum are currently garnering a tremendous amount of professional and public interest. While this undoubtedly is, in part, due to their financial (highly speculative) rise, I was curious to learn more ...

  Guide to pairing-based cryptography
El Mrabet N., Joye M.,  Chapman & Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, 2016. 420 pp. Type: Book (978-1-498729-50-5)

In this context, a pairing is a bilinear map from two (not necessarily distinct) groups G1,G2 to a third. In cryptography, pairings are almost inevitably constructed from el...

  Boolean functions and their applications in cryptography
Wu C., Feng D.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 256 pp. Type: Book (978-3-662488-63-8)

Coding theory and cryptography are the backbone of modern-day information and communication technology (ICT). Boolean functions (BF) turn out to be one of the most beautiful building blocks for both. Several books on BF cover general material, inc...

  Number theory: an introduction via the density of primes (2nd ed.)
Fine B., Rosenberger G.,  Birkhäuser Basel, Cham, Switzerland, 2016. 413 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319438-73-3)

This is the second edition of a respected text on number theory. The subtitle--an introduction via the density of primes--explains its orientation. It’s certainly ambitious, proving the prime number theorem less than halfway...

  Quantum computational number theory
Yan S.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2015. 252 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319258-21-8)

The idea of quantum computing including the quantum Turing machine originated in the last century. However, real interest in quantum computing developed after the seminal paper by Peter Shor [1], where he gave polynomial-time algorithms for the in...
