• Let's Make a Deal II

This applet doesn't have more explanation than - Let's Make a Deal II- An applet to demo at the UCLA conference. It has statistics for a number of tries at a time with choices for whether or not the host knows what is behind the door and whether or not the contestant switches doors after primary choice.
• Shannon's Experiment to Calculate the Entropy of English

The following applet allows you to simulate the Shannon experiment, an experiment aimed at determining the entropy of an English letter (the amount of information in bits that we obtain on the average when we learn one letter of English). The simulation will calculate the amount of entropy for you when you are finished guessing the letters.
• Breaking The Vigenere Encryption System

This applet is programmed to illustrate the code-breaking process using the Vigenere encryption as the code. The Vigenere encryption is broken by comparing histograms of various frequencies until the correct guess is obtained. A wrong guess for the period p leads to relatively flat histograms. The code breaker in this case repeats the analysis with a new trial period.
• Breaking The Rectangular Transposition Encryption System

This applet illustrates the codebreaking process entitled Rectangular Transposition Encryption System.
• Breaking A Monoalphabetic Encryption System Using a Known Plaintext Attack

This applet illustrates the codebreaking process using a chi-squared process.
