Group B: Finite fields and their applications in combinatorics and cryptology (Prof. Kirby Baker)
Here are some HW problems:
Challenge: 10.17, 10.21
Group B: What are finite fields? We'll answer this question and you'll see that you are already familiar with many of them, in a different guise. There are some nice applications that are easy to understand; we'll look at a few.
