Number Theory and Post-Quantum Cryptography

In this talk we will discuss some problems from number theory for which quantum algorithms provide an exponential speedup and which have connections to cryptography. We will also discuss some of the recently proposed post-quantum cryptosystems that are based on number theoretic assumptions, such as systems based on isogenies between supersingular elliptic curves.

Host: Fred Chong
