Combinatorics of Finite Geometries by Lynn Margaret Batten

Book Description

This book is an introductory text on the combinatorial theory of finite geometry. It assumes only a basic knowledge of set theory and analysis, but soon leads the student to results at the frontiers of research. It begins with an elementary combinatorial approach to finite geometries based on finite sets of points and lines, and moves into the classical work on affine and projective planes. The next part deals with polar spaces, partial geometries, and generalised quadrangles. The revised edition contains an entirely new chapter on blocking sets in linear spaces, which highlights some of the most important applications of blocking sets from the initial game-theoretic setting to their recent use in cryptography. Extensive exercises at the end of each chapter ensure the usefulness of this book for senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students.

Public Key Cryptography by Lynn Margaret Batten Public Key Cryptography, Hardback (March 2013)

This book covers public-key cryptography, describing in depth all major public-key cryptosystems in current use, including ElGamal, RSA, Elliptic Curve, and digital signature schemes. It explains the underlying mathematics needed to build these schemes, and examines the most common techniques used in attacking them.
