Dr. Jeremy Johnson, Ph.D. students presented research at ACM Symposium

July 9, 2013 — Dr. Jeremy Johnson, professor of computer science, and his Ph.D. candidates, Lingchuan Meng, Mark Boady and Gavin Harrison, presented their research at the ACM International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation (ISSAC), which was held June 26-29, 2013 at Northeastern University in Boston, Mass.

Meng received the Distinguished Poster Award after presenting the poster, "Towards Parallel General-Size Library Generation for Polynomial Multiplication," which described his research with Johnson. Boady presented the paper, "A Term Rewriting System for the Calculus of Moving Surfaces," co-authored with Johnson and colleague Dr. Pavel Grinfeld, associate professor of mathematics at Drexel, while Harrison presented the poster, "Probabilistic Analysis of Wiedemann’s Algorithm for Minimal Polynomial Computation," about a recent research result he obtained with Johnson and Dr. David Saunders, professor at University of Delaware.
