Torus Talks: I Like Secrets – Basic Cryptography and the Math Required by Dr. Adrian Biglands
Note: Event start time changed to 11 a.m. (was originally noon).
The idea of cryptography encompasses the competing skills of concealment and revealing of a plain text message. The process of decrypting a message without the key is called cryptanalysis and the method of encrypting messages with ciphers is called cryptography. Dr. Adrian Biglands will provide an introduction to the idea of cryptography and consider the basic mathematics behind both of these topics with historical insights along the way.
The Math and Stats Department Torus Talks showcase the beauty of mathematics and statistics in a low-key and fun way. The talks are pitched to a general university audience and we invite the entire university community to explore mathematics and statistics with us.
