Event Description
"NTL: A Library for Doing Number Theory"
NTL is a high-performance C++ library for doing arithmetic on polynomial over various rings (integers and finite fields), as well as a number of other algebraic structures. Dr. Shroup will discuss the history of NTL, as well as some of the basic elements of its design and the algorithms it employs. He will also discuss recent work on making NTL exploit multicore and SIMD computer architectures, as well as NTL's use in implementing fully homomorphic encryption schemes.
