The 2020 Program: Number Theory Informed by Computation
Number theory has always drawn inspiration from computational experiments; the importance and influence of computational number theory has steadily expanded over the last decades. The goal of the 2020 GSS is to bring together people working at the interface of number theory and computation, interpreted broadly. There will be minicourses on topics including algorithmic number theory, post-quantum cryptography, geometry of numbers, and arithmetic statistics; more advanced topics will include computation of zeta functions and computational arithmetic geometry.
