Masters Thesis USC Math Library Catalog

LATTICES

Thesis: Integral Lattices, Basis Reduction, and the Shortest Vector Problem
Definition: If B is a set of n linear independent vectors then

is an integral lattice with basis B.

An objective of the thesis was to write an "efficient" algorithm to find the shortest vector for any integral lattice (this is a NP Hard Problem). Applications of Integral Lattices include Integer Programming and Finding Solutions to Diophantine Equations.
