CANCELED The Hermite-Serret Algorithm

CANCELED Douglas Iannucci, University of the Virgin Islands

Location:  CANCELED Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 12 March 2020 at 5:00PM - 6:00PM

Abstract: Hermite and Serret in 1848 independently devised an algorithm by which to find the two squares which add up to a given prime p of the form 4x+1. It works as well if p is composite. We generalize this algorithm to find representations of a natural number n as a binary quadratic form u^2 + kuv + v^2 for integers k ? 0.
