UK Computer Science Professor Co-Authors Textbook

Posted in:


TextbookUK Computer Science professor Andy Klapper has co-authored a monograph with Mark Goresky from the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.

The book describes the design, mathematical analysis and implementation of pseudo-random sequences. Psuedo-random sequences are an essential component of every modern digital communication system, including cell phones and global positioning systems, to a name a few, and have specific statistical properties. Self-contained chapters make the book accessible to a wide range of students and there are complete proofs and exercises provided.

Klapper’s research focuses on the application of algebra and number theory to problems in cryptography and communications.  Algebraic Shift Register Sequences is to be published by the Cambridge University Press and will be available on January 31, 2012.
