Combinatorics and analysis of algorithms in number theory, information theory and cryptography


Welcome to our webpage. Here you will find information about our members, our projects and a summary of our activities.

Our meetings, events and so on are described here.

Research interests

This project lies inside the domain of “Mathematical Informatics”. It focuses on the probabilistic analysis of some algorithms and combinatorial structures which are central in Computional Number Theory, Information Theory and Cryptography. We will mainly use analytic combinatorics methodology. Very often we use specific methods of Dynamical Combinatorics which mixes the general methods of Analytic Combinatorics with other methods that come from Dynamical Systems Theory.


It is conducted by a group composed by three teams: two teams based in South America (Montevideo and Buenos-Aires) and one team based in France (inside the GREYC Laboratory at the University of Caen).

This group is an axis of the CNRS International Associated Laboratory INFINIS.
