## The first homework set

Posted in Uncategorized by amitc1 on October 10, 2009

It is ready at last! I have posted it to the course website (scroll down all the way). Future homework sets will be announced here as and when they get posted.

Problem 2 on this set refers to the finite field $GF(2^n)$. If you are unfamiliar with this object, read this Wikipedia article. That already gives you enough information for now. If you want to learn more about finite fields, stop by my office sometime or pick up a suitable Mathematics textbook.
