Binary quadratic forms : classical theory and modern computations by Duncan A Buell( Book )
13 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 349 libraries worldwide
The first coherent exposition of the theory of binary quadratic forms was given by Gauss in the Disqnisitiones Arithmeticae. During the nine teenth century, as the theory of ideals and the rudiments of algebraic number theory were developed, it became clear that this theory of bi nary quadratic forms, so elementary and computationally explicit, was indeed just a special case of a much more elega, nt and abstract theory which, unfortunately, is not computationally explicit. In recent years the original theory has been laid aside. Gauss's proofs, which involved brute force computations that can be done in what is essentially a two dimensional vector space, have been dropped in favor of n-dimensional arguments which prove the general theorems of algebraic number the ory. In consequence, this elegant, yet pleasantly simple, theory has been neglected even as some of its results have become extremely useful in certain computations. I find this neglect unfortunate, because binary quadratic forms have two distinct attractions. First, the subject involves explicit computa tion and many of the computer programs can be quite simple. The use of computers in experimenting with examples is both meaningful and enjoyable; one can actually discover interesting results by com puting examples, noticing patterns in the "data," and then proving that the patterns result from the conclusion of some provable theorem
Algorithmic number theory : 6th international symposium, ANTS-VI, Burlington, VT, USA, June 13-18, 2004 : proceedings by Duncan A Buell( Book )
14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium, ANTS 2004, held in Burlington, VT, USA, in June 2004. The 30 revised full papers presented together with 3 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. Among the topics addressed are zeta functions, elliptic curves, hyperelliptic curves, GCD algorithms, number field computations, complexity, primality testing, Weil and Tate pairings, cryptographic algorithms, function field sieve, algebraic function field mapping, quartic fields, cubic number fields, lattices, discrete logarithms, and public key cryptosystems
Computational perspectives on number theory : proceedings of a conference in honor of A.O.L. Atkin, September 1995, University of Illinois at Chicago ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
Splash 2 : FPGAs in a custom computing machine by Duncan A Buell( Book )
10 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
Details the complete Splash 2 project - the hardware and software systems, their architecture and implementation, and the design process by which the architecture evolved from an earlier version machine. In addition to the description of the machine, this book explains why Splash 2 was engineered. It Illustrates several applications in detail, allowing you to gain an understanding of the capabilities and the limitations of this kind of computing device

Congruential sieves on FPGA computers by Nathan D Bronson( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Congruential sieves have been built as special purpose processors since at least the 1920's. In this paper we describe the efficient design of a sieve for the Splash FPGA-based attached processor board. The combination of a host workstation and the programmable Splash board achieves the highest performance to date of any sieve on a programmable computer. We illustrate the design with a search for negative pseudo-squares."
