Website news (Reporter: Ji Liang) Professor Yan Songyuan of Computer School, member of 100-Talents Plan, signed a contract with the international famous press, Springer, that, his latest English treatise Quantum Computational Number Theory will be published in August, 2015. This is the first treatise in this field.
Professor Yan Songyuan has engaged in research of computational number theory and cryptology for a long time. He is good at solving significant puzzles in cryptology with profound number theory and tool to calculate complexity theory. He has conducted plenty of profound and systematic researches based on cryptology design and cryptology analysis to calculate intractable number theory problems. Quantum Computational Number Theory collected systematically his research results of the past 10 years. The book has been reviewed by 4 international specialists, and was identified to be the advanced level of the world.
According to information, Professor Yan Songyuan has published 4 books in Springer: Number Theory for Computing, Primality Testing and Integer Factorization in Public-Key Cryptography, Cryptanalytic Attacks on RSA and Quantum Attacks on Public-Key Cryptosystems. These books are extensively cited in the world. The winner of Turing Award, Rivest, listed these books in the specified reference books of his course for doctoral student, Internet Security. Number Theory for Computing and Cryptanalytic Attacks on RSA have been translated into Polish and Russian respectively. According to statistics, before this, in all the scholars of Chinese descent, only Hua Luogeng and Qian Xuesen’s books have been translated into Russian, and published in Russia.
Yan Songyuan, PhD of Number Theory of the Department of Mathematics of the University of York, postdoctor of information safety in Computor Laboratory of University of Cambridge. He used to engage in research and teaching in multiple universities including University of Cambridge, MIT, Harvard University, etc.
