DESCRIPTION:Understanding whether (and how often) a mathematical expressio
n takes a square value is a problem that has fascinated mathematicians sin
ce antiquity. In this lecture a survey of this problem\, starting from its
independent origins in many cultures in ancient times to some of the majo
r advances of the modern day will be given. How the problem closely relate
s to the very active and exciting area of modern mathematics known as “a
rithmetic geometry” and how the ideas of this subject have revolutionize
d cryptography and coding theory will also be explained.\n\nhttps://indico
