Integration, the VLSI Journal - Special Issue "Hardware Architectures for Algebra, Cryptology and Number Theory"

During the last years, the interaction of research in computer engineering with research in algebra and number theory has intensified. This interaction is especially visible in cryptography and cryptanalysis, but covers also other areas, such as coding theory, and signal and image processing. Numerous other examples of interactions between computer engineering and algebra can be found in the areas of artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, lossless and lossy compression, steganography, and many others. For this special issue, topics of particular interest include
