Course objectives
At the end of this course, students should be able to: understand and use methods of number theory to solve simple tasks; understand approximately how results of number theory are applied in cryptography: understand basic computational context;
model and solve simple combinatorial problems.
  • Number theory:
  • divisiblity (gcd, extended Euclid algorithm, Bezout); numerics of big numbers (gcd, modular exponential); prime numbers (properties, basic theorems of arithmetics, factorization, prime number testing (Rabin-Miller, Mersenneho prime numbers); congruences (basic properties, small Fermat theorem; Euler theorem; linear congruences; binomial congruences a primitiv roots; discrete logarithm;
  • Number theory applications:
  • short introduction to asymetric cryptography (RSA, DH, ElGamal, DSA, ECC); basic coding theory (linear and polynomial codes);
  • Combinatorics:
  • reminder of basics of combinatorics; generalized binomial theorem; combinatorial identities; Catalan numbers; formal power series; (ordinary) generating functions; exponential generating functions; probabilistic generating functions; solving combinatorial problems with the help of generating functions; solving basic reccurences (Fibonacci).
Teaching methods
There are standard two-hour lectures and standard tutorial.
Assessment methods
During the semester, two obligatory mid-term exams are evaluated (each for max 10 points). In the seminar groups there are tests during the semester being written. The seminars are evaluated in total by max 5 points. The final practical written test for max 20 points. For successful examination (the grade at least E) the student needs to obtain 20 points or more.
