Are these courses enough for foundation course in Crypto?

  1. Jun 10, 2015 #1
    If someone completed Discrete Math, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations,Programming 1 (Python), Intro to Algorithms and Data Structures (Java), and an introductory Statistics and Probability course would they have enough of an understanding in Math to be able to grasp the concepts of an entry level course in Cryptology or Cryptography course?

    I would prepare for my first crypto course by learning some number theory, combinatorics, and logic. Enough of this should have been covered by the discrete math course. Most likely the calculus and stats courses are irrelevant. Programming is useful though.
