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!).
