Lign 17: Making and Breaking Codes Prof. Andrew Kehler UCSD Department of Linguistics [email protected] (858) 534-1159 Winter, 2011 MWF 11:00-11:50, WLH 2005 Office Hours: Wednesdays 1-2, Fridays 2-3:30, or by appt. (AP&M 4260) TAs: Gwen Gillingham ([email protected]), Mark Myslin ([email protected]), Gary Patterson ([email protected]) Section Times and Office Hours: TBA Overview A rigorous analysis of symbolic systems. Encryption and decryption of information using progres- sively more sophisticated methods. Other types of codes and their applications. Prerequisites There are no prerequisites. The course satisfies various formal skills requirements in the Human Development Program and Marshall, Roosevelt, Warren, and Sixth colleges. The course does not presume familiarity with any field of knowledge. In particular, you do not need to know any linguistics, number theory, or statistics in advance. However, bear in mind that because it satisfies a number of formal skills requirements, this course will involve a fair bit of problem solving and some unusual arithmetic. Expect it to be challenging (but hopefully fun!).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
