approximate coordinates in a one dimensional lattice

suppose I have a finite set of real numbers ${r_1, \ldots r_n \in \mathbf{R} }$ and a single real number $x \in \mathbf{R}$. Is there a fast algorithm for finding integer numbers ${i_1, \ldots i_n \in ...

Finding special vectors generated by a matrix

Let $G\in \Bbb Z^{n\times n}$ be a unimodular matrix. Are there any efficient algorithms to find the maximum norm of a vector $v$ that satisfies $\langle\Delta(v),v\rangle=0$ over all vectors $v\in ...

The Number of Short Vectors in a Lattice

Given a lattice $L = \bigoplus_{i=1}^{m} \mathbb{Z}v_i$ (the $v_i$ are linearly independent vectors in $\mathbb{R}^n$) and a number $c > 0$, can one quickly compute or find a good estimate on the ...

how to find vertex of parallelotope closest to given point P in R^n ? (Or minimize quadratic form over {+-1}) Is it NP ?

Consider a parallelotope in R^n and some point "P" in R^n. What algorithms (except of brute force) can be suggested to find the closest vertex of paralleloptope to "P" ? Is it NP ? Parallelotope ...

Closest vector problem (=nearest lattice point) is trivial for “reduced lattice” ?

Consider some lattice in R^n. Take some point "P" in R^n (which does not belong to this lattice in general). The problem is to find "nearest" lattice point. The problem is known NP-hard in general it ...

How “often” does LLL-reduction produce “optimal” result ? Is there condition (or informal understanding) on lattice that it LLL is optimal ?

Consider some lattice in R^4 (C^4) or C^8. Famous "lattice reduction" procedures (like LLL latice reduction) produces some "reduced basis". However in general there results are not "the best ...

Lattice reduction in R^3 (R^4) or what is fundamental domain for SL(3,Z) , (SL(4,Z)) ?

Consider a lattice in R^3. Is the some "canonical" way or ways to choose basis in it ? I mean in R^2 we can choose a basis |h_1| < |h_2| and |(h_2, h_1)| < 1/2 |h_1|. Considering lattices with ...

Domination in Nice Lattices

Let an integer vector be nice when it has only two nonzero components, which sum to zero. So (0, 0, 3, 0, -3) and (-1, 0, 1, 0, 0) are examples of nice vectors in $n=5$ dimensions. Call a lattice ...
