I have contributed to write several textbooks targeting graduated students and professionals. When applicable, my leitmotiv was to propose exercises illustrating the covered topic (programming in C, Coding theory…) yet with corrections. More recently, the objective was to broaden the target audience by offering a pragmatic coverage of a given hot topic (blockchains, NFT) through a set of questions everybody might want to ask.

In details, below are the details of the books I contributed to write:
