Tutte seminar - Igor ShparlinskiExport this event to calendar

Friday, January 23, 2009 — 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM EST

Fermat quotients

Speaker: Igor Shparlinski
Affiliation: Macquarie University
Room: Mathematics & Computer Building (MC) 5158

Abstract:

We describe recent results improving previous estimates of H. W. Lenstra and A. Granville on the smallest non-zero Fermat quotient. This question is motivated by application to square-free testing (H. W. Lenstra), Fermat Last Theorem (A. Granville) and algebraic number theory and coding theory (Y. Ihara).

This is joint work with Jean Bourgain, Kevin Ford, and Sergei Konyagin.
