Coding and decoding, also known as Cryptography, is the art of secret communication. It involves transforming a plain message into a jumbled text so that no one other than the intended receiver will be able to decipher and comprehend the message. Due to rapid usage of modern communication technologies, security has become a serious concern in terms of tampering with vital messages that are being transmitted over the Internet or hand-held devices. A great deal of modern cryptography depends upon basic number theory, clever manipulations of large integers, and use of software such as Excel. In this program, students will be introduced to the essentials of number theory and Excel for encryption. Students will gain hands-on experience in encrypting and decrypting messages.

For more information, please contact the UCA Department of Mathematics Chair, Dr. Ramesh Garimella at rameshg@uca.edu or call 501-450-3147.
