Title: Generalized Modular String Averaged Procedure and Its Applications to Iterative MethodsSpeaker: Kay Barshad Affiliation: University of Waterloo Location: MC 6029
Abstract: A modular string averaging procedure (MSA, for short) for a finite number of operators was first introduced by Reich and Zalas in 2016. The MSA concept provides a flexible algorithmic framework for solving various feasibility problems such as common fixed point and convex feasibility problems.
Title: Breaking the Supersingular Isogeny Diffie-Hellman protocolSpeaker: Wouter Castryck Affiliation: KU Leuven Location: Please contact Eva Lee for Zoom link
Abstract: Finding an explicit isogeny between two given isogenous elliptic curves over a finite field is considered a hard problem, even for quantum computers.
