Multivariate Algorithms and their Foundations in Number Theory
Linz, October 15-December 21, 2018
The notion of pseudo-randomness plays a very crucial role for (quasi-)Monte Carlo methods but also in cryptography. For both applications, number theoretic constructions of high quality pseudo-random number generators using finite fields have been very successful. Finite fields are also of great importance in modern applications such as analysis of algorithms, information and communication theory, signal processing and coding theory.
A tutorial on some of the main topics of the workshop will be given by Arne Winterhof:
"Applications of Number Theory"
The tutorial consists of a survey talk given on Thursday, Oct. 25, 13:45-15:15, followed by lectures every Thursday, 13:45-15:15.
Location of Survey talk: RICAM, Room SP2 416-2,
Location of lectures: Room MT 128.
