Algorithmic Number Theory
Date: August 14-23, 2000
This workshop will have lecture series covering the basic areas of algorithmic number theory, aimed at graduate students and mathematicians without extensive experience in the field.
The topics covered will include:
- Basic Number Theoretic Algorithms
- Primality and Factorization
- Computations in Algebraic Number Fields
- Elliptic Curves
- Lattice Basis Reduction
- Analytic Number Theory Algorithms
A related event follows on the UC Berkeley campus: a 3-day conference in honor of the Lehmers; see http://www.math.berkeley.edu/lehmer.html for information.
Funding is available: Students, recent PhDs, women, and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. To apply, send a letter explaining your interest in the workshop. If you are a student, solicit a letter from a faculty advisor. Otherwise, send a current vita or bibliography. All information should be received by June 2. If funding remains, late registration may be possible.
