Geometry & Topology

Some new point-counting algorithms

David Harvey (UNSW)

Thursday 4 June 2015 from 12:0013:00 in Carslaw 535A

Please join us for lunch after the talk!


Abstract: I will outline a new algorithm for counting points on varieties defined over finite fields. The presentation will be elementary and will not assume any prior experience with the point-counting problem. Details are given in the preprint "Computing zeta functions of arithmetic schemes".
