This DIAMANT symposium will include a special afternoon on algebra and number theory in cryptography.

Invited speakers include Craig Gentry (IBM), Gunnar Klau (CWI), Hugues Randriambololona (ENST Paris), Gilles Zémor (Université Bordeaux 1) and Sander Zwegers (Universitat Köln).

How to contribute a talk
In the registration form (see below) Ph.D. students and postdocs can propose to give a talk (submit title and abstract).

Dion Gijswijt and Jordan Ellenberg independently substantially improve capset bound

A capset in a finite dimensional vector space over the field with 3 elements is a subset that contains no 3-term arithmetic progressions. Dion Gijswijt (TU Delft) and Jordan Ellenberg have independently obtained a bound on the size of a capset that for the first time improves substantially on the trivial bound 3^n.

Bert Gerards en collega's bewijzen vermoeden van Rota

Bert Gerards van het Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) en zijn collega's Jim Geelen (University of Waterloo) en Geoff Whittle (Victoria University of Wellington) hebben het beroemde 40 jaar oude Vermoeden van Rota bewezen. Het team heeft meer dan 15 jaar gewerkt aan de oplossing van het probleem dat in 1970 door Gian-Carlo Rota werd geformuleerd. Lees verder.
