# Computer Algebra II (Lecture)

Summer 2008

Description -
Course Details

How many field operations are needed to multiply two univariate polynomials
of degree *n* over some field *K*?
How about the number of field operations needed for factoring a polynomial
or computing a greatest common divisor of two polynomials?
Efficient algorithms for these and other problems were presented in
Computer Algebra I, but are they as efficient as can be?
It turns out that they are not. In Computer Algebra II we will present
faster algorithms, including some of the fastest algorithms known today
for solving algebraic problems.
