The Characteristic Polynomial of Multi-Rooted, Directed Trees
We define the characteristic polynomial for single-rooted trees and begin with a theorem about this polynomial, derived from the known contrac- tion/deletion formula. We expand our scope to include multi-rooted, directed ...
Comparing the Efficiency of Hybrid and Public Key Encryption Schemes
Cryptography is the study on secure communication and transmission in the presence of adversaries . Cryptography focuses on how to exchange messages in a code that the adversaries cannot break. We compare different kinds ...
Algebraic Coding Theory
This project will attempt an in-depth study of algebraic coding theory. We will study the two basic kinds of codes: Block codes and trellis codes. Specifically, we will look at linear block codes, cyclic codes, Hamming ...
