This book presents interesting, important unsolved problems in the mathematical and computational sciences. The contributing authors are leading researchers in their fields and they explain outstanding challenges in their domains, first by offering basic definitions, explaining the context, and summarizing related algorithms, theorems, and proofs, and then by suggesting creative solutions.

The authors feel a strong motivation to excite deep research and discussion in the mathematical and computational sciences community, and the book will be of value to postgraduate students and researchers in the areas of theoretical computer science, discrete mathematics, engineering, and cryptology.

Prof. Çetin Kaya Koç is a research professor in the Dept. of Computer Science and the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UCSB in 1988, and was an assistant professor at the University of Houston, and a full professor at Oregon Sta...
