Course Code: B63004Y
Course Name: Mathematic Foundations of Information Security
Pre-requisite: Advanced Mathematics, Linear Algebra
Lecture Time: 40 hours
This course mainly introduces information security with primary mathematical contents such as probability, number theory, algebra and computational complexity. This course is designed for undergraduates with major in information security and other relevant area. It provides solid and significant mathematical theories and skills, which can be as a foundation for more professional courses. This course contains large quantities of scattered knowledge ranging across several different fields. Students will learn from the professor in details and explore directions on their own.
Topics and Schedule
A weekly homework will be given during weeks of the class. The homework will be graded and their scores will count for 20% of the total. At the middle and end of the semester, there will be mid-term and final examinations, which will count for 20% and 60% respectively. The full score of this course is 100.
This course uses handouts compiles by instructors.
