Polynomial delta function

The function has a curious property: for any linear function , and any point , the integral evaluates to . This is easy to check using the fact that odd powers of integrate to zero: 265 more words


The LLL lattice basis reduction algorithm

I gave a talk on Tuesday at the “Gems of Theoretical Computer Science” seminar on the LLL algorithm.


The LLL (Lenstra–Lenstra–Lovász) algorithm is a lattice reduction algorithm that can approximate the shortest vector in a lattice, and has numerous applications (which I’ll cover as time permits), including polynomial-time algorithms to… 317 more words
