Topics in Computer Algebra, Summer 2007

Meet, Wednesdays, 2:30-4:30pm, K9509


  • The fast Fourier transform, fast integer multiplication, and the fast Euclidean algorithm.
  • Data structures for polynomial division: "dynamic arrays", "geo-buckets" and "pointer heaps".
  • Sparse polynomial interpolation and its application to multivariate polynomial GCD computation.
  • Rational number reconstruction, p-adic lifting and their application to solving Ax=b over the rationals.
  • Computing with algebraic numbers, factoring polynomials and solving linear systems over algebraic number fields.
