Workshop 4: December 09-13, 2013

Emerging applications of finite fields


Main topics

Finite fields are the meeting point of algebra, number theory, computer science, coding theory, and cryptography. The workshop will provide an exchange of the most recent achievements in theory and applications of finite fields.
Although some well-known theoretical and applied areas, such as coding theory, cryptography and wireless communication will be included, we will also focus on less-studied and emergent applications of algorithmic and combinatorial flavor.
Finite fields play also a crucial role in the construction of uniformly distributed sequences and point sets (cf. Workshop 1), algebraic geometry (cf. Workshop 2), and computer algebra (cf. Workshop 3).
