comment Bilinear Map vs Inner Product
Just to be explicit about something this answer doesn't state directly: A dot product is a special type of bilinear map; it has bilinearity plus the other properties listed here.

comment Should I study advanced abstract algebra and more than elementary number theory to pursue a career in cryptography?
Finite fields are used in crypto. If your previous abstract algebra class covered how to construct e.g., a field of size 2^128, then you'll likely have all the required knowledge about finite fields to read crypto papers. If you haven't encountered this sort of thing before, it will likely be presented as preliminary material in the Galois theory class. I haven't encountered any Galois Theory beyond this in crypto, but mathematical maturity is always helpful (and Galois Theory is a rather beautiful subject, anyway, IMO).
