Computational Algebra Seminar: Elsenhans -- Computation of Galois groups

Speaker: Andreas-Stephan Elsenhans
Title: Computation of Galois groups
Time & Place: 3:05-4pm, Thursday 22 November, Carslaw Lecture Theatre 273.

Magma computes Galois groups by using Stauduhar’s method.
In this talk I will describe some key steps of the implementation (done by
Claus Fieker and Jurgen Kluners) that lead to the current performance.
Finally, I will sketch some starting points for further improvements.
