Polynomials over Finite Fields: Functional and Algebraic Properties

May 19 2014 - 12:24
May 23 2014 - 12:24
Venue: 

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Bellaterra, Barcelona

Short description of the event: 

The theory of polynomials over finite fields is fundamental for the study of finite fields, which in turn plays a central role in many areas of pure and applied mathematics. This is a classical area of mathematics with a rich history, going back to Gauss and Galois. The exciting and challenging problems concerning univariate and multivariate polynomials over finite fields are of intricate algebraic and number theoretic flavour and their study requires deep mathematical and computational tools.

Invited speakers:
Mei-Chu Chung
Jean-Charles Faugere
Wen-Ching (Winnie) Li
Gary Mullen
Michael Zieve

Organizers:
Joachim von zur Gathen
