Leading experts have joined forces for the first time to explain the state of the art in quantum computing, hash-based cryptography, code-based cryptography, lattice-based cryptography, and multivariate cryptography. Mathematical foundations and implementation issues are included.
This book is an essential resource for students and researchers who want to contribute to the field of post-quantum cryptography.
Daniel J. Bernstein is a research professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Professor Bernstein has received a U.S. National
Science Foundation CAREER award, a Cyber Trust award, three more U.S.government grants, and a Sloan Research Fellowship for his research in computational number theory, cryptography, and computer security. He is the author of several dozen papers and two of the Internet's most popular server software packages, djbdns and qmail.
Johannes A. Buchmann is a Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and an associate editor of the Journal of Cryptology. He received the most prestigious award in science in Germany, the Leibniz Award of the German Science Foundation. He also received the Karl Heinz-Beckurts Award for technology transfer. He is a member of the German Academy of Science and Engieneering.
Erik Dahmen is a PhD student in Prof. Buchmann's research group at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. He received his diploma degree in Mathematics from the Technische Universität Darmstadt in 2006. Erik Dahmen is the author of various research papers on hash-based cryptography.
Johannes A. Buchmann is Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at the Technical University of Darmstadt, and an Associate Editor of the Journal of Cryptology. In 1985, he received a Feodor Lynen Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Bitcoin, the first successful decentralized digital currency, is still in its early stages and yet it’s already spawned a multi-billion-dollar global economy open to anyone with the knowledge and passion to participate. Mastering Bitcoin provides the knowledge. You simply supply the passion.
The second edition includes:A broad introduction of bitcoin and its underlying blockchain—ideal for non-technical users, investors, and business executivesAn explanation of the technical foundations of bitcoin and cryptographic currencies for developers, engineers, and software and systems architectsDetails of the bitcoin decentralized network, peer-to-peer architecture, transaction lifecycle, and security principlesNew developments such as Segregated Witness, Payment Channels, and Lightning NetworkA deep dive into blockchain applications, including how to combine the building blocks offered by this platform into higher-level applicationsUser stories, analogies, examples, and code snippets illustrating key technical concepts

About the first edition:
It is amazing how much Buchmann is able to do in under 300 pages: self-contained explanations of the relevant mathematics (with proofs); a systematic introduction to symmetric cryptosystems, including a detailed description and discussion of DES; a good treatment of primality testing, integer factorization, and algorithms for discrete logarithms; clearly written sections describing most of the major types of cryptosystems....This book is an excellent reference, and I believe it would also be a good textbook for a course for mathematics or computer science majors..."

The book details how programmers and electronic communications professionals can use cryptography-the technique of enciphering and deciphering messages-to maintain the privacy of computer data. It describes dozens of cryptography algorithms, gives practical advice on how to implement them into cryptographic software, and shows how they can be used to solve security problems. The book shows programmers who design computer applications, networks, and storage systems how they can build security into their software and systems.
With a new Introduction by the author, this premium edition will be a keepsake for all those committed to computer and cyber security.
Völlig neu und dem heutigen Wissensstand angepasst ist der theoretische Teil mit Physiologie, Pathophysiologie, klinischer Struktur- und Funktionspathologie der Muskulatur, die Grundlagen für das Verstehen der Muskelfunktion.
Die bewährten Untersuchungstechniken nach Janda wurden im umfangreichen Praxisteil mit neuem Bildmaterial komplett überarbeitet. Im Doppelseitenprinzip zeigen aussagekräftige Farbfotos reale Patienten – kolorierte Anatomiezeichnungen verdeutlichen, wo und wie die betroffenen Muskeln über Triggerpunkte, Fernpunkte und Schmerzprojektionen gezielt untersucht und Behandlungsprinzipien abgeleitet werden.
„Der Janda" nun ein völlig neues Buch. Herausgeber ist die ÄMM (Ärztevereinigung Manuelle Medizin).
The book is of interest to anyone wanting to understand the state of the art of this research field.
