The nationwide safety company funded a convention on Coding concept, Cryp tography, and quantity conception (nick-named Cryptoday) on the usa Naval Academy, on October 25-27, 1998. We have been very lucky to were in a position to allure gifted mathematicians and cryptographers to the assembly. regrettably, a few humans could not make it for both scheduling or investment purposes. a few of these were invited to give a contribution a paper besides. moreover, Prof. William Tutte and Frode Weierud were variety sufficient to permit the inclusion of a few very fascinating unpublished papers of theirs. The papers primarily fall into 3 catagories. ancient papers on cryp tography performed in the course of international conflict II (Hatch, Hilton, Tutte, Ulfving, and Weierud), mathematical papers on more moderen tools in cryptography (Cosgrave, Lomonoco, Wardlaw), and mathematical papers in coding conception (Gao, Joyner, Michael, Shokranian, Shokrollahi). a short biography of the authors follows. - Peter Hilton is a wonderful Professor of arithmetic Emeritus on the nation collage of latest York at Binghamton. He labored from 1941 to 1945 within the British cryptanalytic headquarters at Bletchley Park. Profes sor Hilton has performed large learn in algebraic topology and team thought. - William Tutte is a special Professor Emeritus and an accessory seasoned fessor within the Combinatorics and Optimization division on the Univer sity of Waterloo. He labored from 1941 to 1945 within the British cryptana lytic headquarters at Bletchley Park. Professor Tutte has performed huge learn within the box of combinatorics.
