This volume contains the proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Finite Fields and Applications, held in Melbourne, Australia, July 9-13, 2007. It contains 5 invited survey papers as well as original research articles covering various theoretical and applied areas related to finite fields.

Finite fields, and the computational and algorithmic aspects of finite field problems, continue to grow in importance and interest in the mathematical and computer science communities because of their applications in so many diverse areas. In particular, finite fields now play very important roles in number theory, algebra, and algebraic geometry, as well as in computer science, statistics, and engineering. Areas of application include algebraic coding theory, cryptology, and combinatorial design theory.

Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in finite fields and applications.
