UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA
Department of Mathematics
Fall 2007 - Hans Rademacher Lectures in Mathematics
Hendrik W. Lenstra
will speak on
Algorithms for ordered fieldsOne of the reasons ordered fields are interesting, is that one can write down a fairly explicit model of an algebraic closure of any ordered field. The series of lectures is devoted to a number of problems that one encounters if one wishes to make this model completely explicit and to design efficient algorithms for doing computations in the model.
