Lectures 
Room C104, Carleton Hall Instructor: Mike Jacobson Office: Tilley Hall, Room 414 Email: jacobs@cpsc.ucalgary.ca Office hours: TBA  
Textbook  There is no required textbook, but you might find the Handbook of Applied Cryptography by Menezes, van Oorschot, and Vanstone useful.  
Grading 
Two components are included in the determination of the course grade.
A percentage grade (ratio of number of marks awarded to the number of marks available) will be computed for each component. An overall percentage grade for the course will then be computed, using the percentage grades awarded for each component, as a weighted average using the weightings listed above. Finally, the overall percentage grade will be converted to a letter grade using the following conversion. (This is the only letter grade that will be used, in this course.)


Group Work 
Group submissions are not permitted for the assignments. Some
collaboration and brainstorming on problems is defintiely encouraged, but
be sure to write out all the answers yourself in your own words.
If you do collaborate with others, declare on your submitted assignment the
questions for which you collaborated and the names of all people with whom
you collaborated. You are also encouraged to consult references outside
the lecture notes (text books, Wikipedia, research papers) but again, if you
do so, declare these explicitly on your assignment submission.
Group work is allowed on all components of the research project. Groups of up to four students are allowed. See the project description on the "handouts" page for more information. 

Exam  There will be no midterm nor final exam.
