FQ 10, The 10th International Conference on Finite Fields and their Applications

Sunday, July 10, 2011 - 8:00pm to Friday, July 15, 2011 - 7:59pm

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
<li> <strong>Fi eld-theoretic aspects of fi nite fi elds:</strong>
structure of finite fi elds, normal bases, polynomials,
primitive elements, number-theoretic aspects of finite fields, exponential sums, arithmetic
theory of function fi elds.

<li><strong>Computational aspects:</strong>
algorithms and complexity, polynomial factorization, decomposition
and irreducibility testing, sequences and functions.

<li><strong>Applications:</strong> algebraic coding theory, cryptography, affine and projective geometry over fi nite
fields, algebraic geometry over finite fields, fi nite incidence geometry, designs and con gurations, difference sets, combinatorics, generalisations of finite fields.
