MATH 317 Fall 2012 Applied Abstract Algebra (Q)

The abstract algebraic structures called groups, rings and fields have proven to have surprisingly many applications. For example, groups have been used to build secure cryptosystems and to study the symmetry of molecules. We will study the abstract properties of groups, rings and fields and then study several applications of this theory. Possible topics include cryptography, puzzles, error correcting codes, computer software applications, symmetry, tiling, networks, and grobner bases.
