About Jonathan P. Sorenson

Jon's research is in the area of algorithmic number theory, which is the design, analysis, and implementation of computer algorithms to solve problems from number theory. Some of the most important problems in this area are factoring large integers and testing integers for primality. Perhaps the most important application for number theoretic algorithms is in public-key cryptography. Jon has done joint work with Butler students, and his research makes use of Butler's new supercomputer, the Big Dawg.
