Pre-SEAMS School Programme (3 days)
Prior to the main SEAMS School Programme, a 3-Day Pre-SEAMS School Workshop will be held for the participants. This is to equip them with sufficient essential knowledge, so as to enable them to follow the contents of the SEAMS School Programme. The topics for discussion in the Pre-School Workshop are as follows:
  1. Commutative Algebras
  2. Algebraic Geometry
  3. Lie Algebras
  4. Number Theory
  5. Quantum Theory
SEAMS School (7 days)
Quantum Physics
Recent advances in quantum information has begun to explore deeper into the structure of complex projective space as space of quantum states. Among the tools employed are algebraic varieties, symplectic quotients and projective ring geometries.
Elliptic Curve Cryptography
Elliptical curve cryptography (ECC) is a public key encryption technique based on elliptic curve theory that can be used to create faster, smaller, and more efficient cryptographic keys.
Algebraic Statistics
Algebraic statistics advocates the use of algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and geometric combinatorics as tools for making statistical inferences. The starting point for this connection is the observation that most statistical models for discrete random variables are, in fact, algebraic varieties.
