This volume consists of contributions by speakers at the AMS Special Session on Combinatorial and Statistical Group Theory held at New York University. Readers will find a variety of contributions, including survey papers on applications of group theory in cryptography, research papers on various aspects of statistical group theory, and papers on more traditional combinatorial group theory.

The book is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory and its applications to cryptography.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory and its applications to cryptography.
