Book by ISR alum and UMD professor enters second edition

A book that ISR alum Wade Trappe co-wrote with Math Department Professor Lawrence C. Washington in 2001 has been updated in a second edition. Introduction to Cryptography with Coding Theory  grew out of a cryptography class the two developed at the University of Maryland. Trappe was a doctoral student in applied mathematics and scientific computing at the time; he was affiliated with both ISR and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and was advised by Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR). He is now an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rutgers University.
