cryptogram / cryptanalysis technique suggestion needed - MathOverflow [closed] most recent 30 from http://mathoverflow.net 2013-05-26T07:04:48Z http://mathoverflow.net/feeds/question/38598 http://www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.5/rdf http://mathoverflow.net/questions/38598/cryptogram-cryptanalysis-technique-suggestion-needed cryptogram / cryptanalysis technique suggestion needed fromnowhere 2010-09-13T16:21:19Z 2010-09-13T16:21:19Z <p>cryptogram / cryptanalysis technique suggestion needed</p> <p>The cryptogram deduced from other information follows:</p> <p>wwes wiii<br> iiii niis iiii iiii niis iiii niis iiii iiis<br> wiie wnes wiie wnes wiie wnes wiie wnes wiie<br> iiii niis iiii niis iiii niis iiii niis iiii nnis iiii<br> wiie wwee wiie wwie wiie wiii<br> iiii niis iiii niis iiii niis iiii nnis nnii/wnii<br> wiie wwne/wine wiee wnes wiie wnes wiis/wiii<br> wiii iiii niii iiii niii </p> <p>/ means one or the other of the two patterns should be used.</p> <p>Note: Each of the 4 letter combos of these represents one letter. Presumbably, I am to use the 26 letters of the English alphabet, assuming numbers 0-9 are invalid. Counting, above there will be 58 total letters to be decrypted.</p> <p>The repeated patterns are here. There would be a max of 15 it seems?<br> wwes<br> wiii<br> iiii<br> niis<br> iiis<br> wiie<br> wnes<br> nnis<br> wwee<br> wwie<br> nnii or wnii?<br> wwne or wine?<br> wiee<br> wiis or wiii?<br> niii </p> <p>I don't need it solved necessary. Rather, I would just like a general approach or method to look up and understand how to approach this cryptogram. My code was derived from a visual representation - I believe there to be no errors or other information than what I have presented here. </p> <p>Thank you for the help guys. This is actually a continuation of a previous post here. Hopefully all criteria for posts were followed. So, let me know what clarifications are needed or about any changes in my writing style I need to incorporate. Thanks.</p>
