Mathematical theories for the design of symmetric cryptography primitives

I did a lot of research in the design and cryptanalysis of primitives for symmetric cryptography: block ciphers, hash functions, MACs, stream ciphers.

I’m trying to formalize both the design and the practice of cryptanalysis by introducing slightly more advanced concepts from mathematics.
