SUMMARY

"This book provides a brief and accessible introduction to the theory of finite fields and to some of their many fascinating and practical applications. The first chapter is devoted to the theory of finite fields. After covering their construction and elementary properties, the authors discuss the trace and norm functions, bases for finite fields, and properties of polynomials over finite fields." "Each of the remaining chapters details applications. Chapter 2 deals with combinatorial topics such as the construction of sets of orthogonal latin squares, affine and projective planes, block designs, and Hadamard matrices. Chapters 3 and 4 provide a number of constructions and basic properties of error-correcting codes and cryptographic systems using finite fields." "Each chapter includes a set of exercises of varying levels of difficulty which help to further explain and motivate the material. Appendix A provides a brief review of the basic number theory and abstract algebra used in the text, as well as exercise related to this material. Appendix B provides hints and partial solutions for many of the exercises in each chapter. A list of 65 references to further reading and to additional topics related to the book's material is also included. Intended for advanced undergraduate students, it is suitable both for classroom use and for individual study."--BOOK JACKET.Mullen, Gary L. is the author of 'Finite Fields and Applications (Student Mathematical Library)', published 2007 under ISBN 9780821844182 and ISBN 0821844180.
