Abstract Algebra

#### RSA Encryption. TeX version or Postscript version

Project contributed by Neal Brand.

This project requires students to read about the RSA method of encryption and then use Mathematica or other software to break a code. Students are also required to generalize the basic theorem used for RSA encryption and prove it. This project requires students to read Section 1.5 of**Abstract Algebra**by Nicholson. Of course, other sources for the information could be used.

Project teaches and provides practice in- Use of symbolic mathematical software
- Generalizing a result and proving it
- RSA method of encryption
