Welcome. This page contains some basic information. Much more is hiding behind the various links.

Information about my research.

My papers and preprints. And some recent talks I've given.

I am a member of WPI's Cryptography and Information Security (CRIS) Research Laboratory.


Here are some on-line resources for courses I am currently teaching. This material is mainly intended for students enrolled in those courses, but visitors are welcome to have a look.

Here is an incomplete list of WPI MQPs (i.e., undergraduate theses) that I have advised or co-advised. Ocassionally, I add some ideas for potential future MQPs to this list.

Here is a recent draft of my PowerPoint presentation on codes and the compact disc. It's aimed at undergraduates who have seen basic linear algebra and have some imagination.

If you are interested in more general things, you may want to read about my teaching, including courses taught and pedagogical discussions.

I have finally transported my Modular Arithmetic Calculator from Winnipeg to Worcester. It still needs plenty of work, but it's useful for calculations by students such as those working in cryptography.


There is not much to know about Bill Martin. But here are a few details, for now. A professional blurb can be found here.
