Spring 2016

Cryptography and Security (ENS de Lyon, Lyon, France, 20 hours)

Instructors: Benoît Libert and Damien Stehlé. This course is intended for Graduate students in computer science.
Cryptography aims at securing communications against malicious parties. This field enjoys numerous links with theoretical computer science (complexity theory, security proofs) but has also a very rich practical counterpart: Cryptographic protocols are part of every-day life (electronic commerce, payment cards, electronic voting, etc).
This course is an introduction to the different facets of modern cryptography. The following topics will be addressed: Symmetric encryption, Asymmetric encryption, Cryptographic hashing, Authentication, Pseudo-random number generators, Zero-knowledge proofs, Public-key infrastructure, Cryptanalysis, Provable security, Secret sharing. We will also describe several practical applications, such as PGP, TLS/SSL and electronic voting.


Functional and recursive algorithms and programming (University Lyon I, Lyon, France, 27 hours)

Instructor: Florence Zara. Students: first year in Computer Science.
Functional and recursive programming in Scheme (Notions: function, recursiveness, alternative, memorization, deep recursiveness, higher order programming; Data structures: lists, trees; Algorithms: traversing a list, sorting a list, traversing a tree), and logic (Propositional logic; Truth tables; transformation rules; Boolean algebra; Simplifying boolean functions: Quine-McCluskey algorithm, Karnaugh maps).


Hardware and software architecture (University Lyon I, Lyon, France, 17 hours)

Instructor: Nicolas Louvet, Laure Gonnord. Students: second year in Computer Science.
The goal of this course is to present the fundamental principles behind how computers work, both on the level of hardware and of the lowest layers of the operating system. We will first study the basic blocks (logic circuits, microprocessors, buses, memory), then the notions of architecture and of set of instructions, to finally move up to the assembly language. Thus, the goal is to gain knowledge about notions that will later allow studying operating systems and compilation, and also to better understand the problems related to software performance.

Instructor: Pascal Koiran.
This course is intended for students in their last year towards a Bachelor’s degree in theoretical computer science. It is an in-depth introduction to the concepts of probability theory illustrated with many examples of applications in computer science and discrete mathematics (probabilistic algorithms, average-case analysis, probabilistic methods in combinatorics…).
