Alberti Cipher Disk and Enigma Cipher

Why did the Alberti Cipher disk have numbers on it? Describe how the disk was used. What made it secure? What was the impact of this disk on cryptology? How does enciphering and deciphering differ on the Enigma? What weakness in the Enigma did the Poles use to break Enigma ciphers?

Relating Transform of a Function and Transform of the Derivative

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems. Problem statement: What really makes Laplace transforms work for differential equations is the relationship between the transform of a function and the transform of the derivative of that function. Therefore, the formula you will prove below is key to all that
