Polynomial maps over finite fields

Hendrik Lenstra (Leiden)

Abstract: Finite fields are finite, and they are fields---they arewhere combinatorics meets algebra. Studying set-theoreticproperties of polynomial maps over finite fields quicklyleads to austere subjects such as finite group theory andto playful notions such as the sum of digits function.The talk is partly based on joint work with MichielKosters.
