Workshop page at the University of WashingtonThe goal of this workshop is to study and formulate practical parallel algorithms that support interactive mathematical research in algebra, geometry, and number theory, and to formulate strategies to encourage implementation and testing of these ideas. For more information please go to: http://sage.math.washington.edu/msri07/ Computer manufacturers have begun delivering multiprocessor machines onto desktops; indeed, this seems to be the only means for continuing the pace of cpu power growth that we have become accustomed to. At the moment, general purpose mathematical software packages rarely exploit parallelism, and this is especially true in the areas of algebra, geometry, number theory, and combinatorics. Dramatic advances in performance will only be possible if parallelism can be harnessed in ways that are transparent to users. We hope to bring together a diverse group of mathematics and computer science researchers and students to discuss algorithms, assess current prospects, and suggest ways to move forward. Talks and discussions will cover new algorithms that exploit parallelism, specific problems likely to benefit from dramatic speedups from parallelism, and strategies to encourage implementation of these ideas. FORMAT: There will be at most 3 hour long lectures a day, and will be plenty of time for interaction between participants. In addition, we will have one or two panel discussions about the current state of the art, and strategies for implementing support for parallel computation. Before the workshop the organizers will create a preliminary strategic plan for parallel computation that will focus discussion during the workshop, and which will hopefully be significantly improved during the workshop. The talks will focus on the following topics:
- Parallel multimodular and p-adic methods for dense, sparse and black box linear algebra over finite fields, the rational numbers and rational functions (e.g., linear system solutions, matrix multiplication, determinants and characteristic polynomials, kernels, etc.)
- Parallel Groebner basis techniques, parallel triangular set construction
- Distributed general purpose integer factorization algorithms
- Uni- and multivariate polynomial arithmetic on large polynomials (high degree, many terms) such as multiplication, GCD, factorization, both for exact and approximate coefficients
- Parallel methods for searching for rational points on curves
- Distributed computation of large tables (e.g., elliptic curves, modular forms, data about L-functions, number fields, etc.)
