### Computing the fixed field of an automorphism of a function field

Let say we have a function field $k(x,y)$ defined by $f(x,y)$ over $k$, with $\sigma \in Aut(k(x,y)/k)$ and. Suppose, I'm not that out of luck, so that either of $\prod \sigma^i(x)$ or $\sum ...

### Algorithm/denominators of elements of a rational affine space

I hope it's not a trivial question... Suppose I have a finite dimensional vector space $V$ over $\mathbb{Q}$ with a distinguished basis (in my case it's the $k$th graded piece of the free associative ...

### Rank of Subgroup of Elliptic Curve

I'm currently looking at two rational points $ p, q $ on an elliptic curve $E$ over $ \mathbb{Q} $. SAGE tells me that $E$ has rank 5 and no torsion, and that $p$ and $q$ both have infinite order. ...

### Efficient quadratic residue mod 2^32

I want to determine if a value is a quadratic residue mod $2^{32}$.
I've developed a very fast pre-screening method based on a Bloom Filter that identifies quadratic residues for mod $2^7=128$ in ...

### Choosing a fast computer algebra system that works in characteristic p?

Hi all,
I want to compute in $\mathbb{F}_q (x)((y))$ i.e. a Laurent series ring over the rational functions over $\mathbb{F}_q$. The computations are fairly basic, but they involve raising to the qth ...

### Counting points on varieties of low codimension

The graduate students here at MIT have been thinking about questions like the following: Over $\mathbb{F}\_q$, how many symmetric matrices are there with nonzero determinant and $0$'s on the diagonal? ...
