MU Talk + Social: Lattices


Jonathan Love, U of T math grad and Stanford PhD student, will be giving a talk on Lattices and Basis Reduction!
INFO: Nov. 22, 4-6 pm // BAB025 // stay for the social happening afterwards, from 6-8 pm
Abstract: A lattice is a discrete collection of points inside a vector space which in many ways behaves like a vector space itself. But for many problems that are simple to solve for vector spaces, the corresponding lattice problems are extremely difficult to solve – so hard, in fact, that there are cryptosystems based on them which are expected to be secure even under quantum attacks.

In addition to discussing a few of these problems, this talk will develop the beginnings of the theory used to try and solve them, through the notion of a fundamental domain for a moduli space and related concepts.
