An improved algorithm for iterative matrix-vector multiplications over finite fields

2018-11-09
Cryptographic computations such as factoring integers and computing discrete logarithms over finite fields require solving a large system of linear equations. When dealing with such systems iterative approaches such as Wiedemann or Lanczos are used. Both methods are based on the computation of a Krylov subspace in which the computational cost is often dominated by successive matrix-vector products. We introduce a new algorithm for computing iterative matrix-vector multiplications over finite fields. The proposed algorithm consists of two stages. The first stage (preprocessing) sorts the elements of the matrix row by row in ascending order and produces permutation tables. After preprocessing, many consecutive multiplications can be performed by the second stage of the algorithm using sequential additions on vector elements by the guidance of the permutation tables. We show that the preprocessing cost of the proposed algorithm can easily be amortized after several matrix-vector multiplications are performed. We implemented the algorithm using the C++ programming language and compared the performance with a classical method. The proposed algorithm exhibits significant improvement between 35% and 67% .

A New Algorithm for Residue Multiplication Modulo 2(521)-1
Ali, Shoukat; Cenk, Murat (2016-12-02)
We present a new algorithm for residue multiplication modulo the Mersenne prime p = 2(521) - 1 based on the Toeplitz matrix-vector product. For this modulus, our algorithm yields better result in terms of the total number of operations than the previously known best algorithm of Granger and Scott presented in Public Key Cryptography (PKC) 2015. We have implemented three versions of our algorithm to provide an extensive comparison - according to the best of our knowledge with respect to the well-known algori...
On the arithmetic complexity of Strassen-like matrix multiplications
Cenk, Murat (2017-05-01)
The Strassen algorithm for multiplying 2 x 2 matrices requires seven multiplications and 18 additions. The recursive use of this algorithm for matrices of dimension n yields a total arithmetic complexity of (7n(2.81) - 6n(2)) for n = 2(k). Winograd showed that using seven multiplications for this kind of matrix multiplication is optimal. Therefore, any algorithm for multiplying 2 x 2 matrices with seven multiplications is called a Strassen-like algorithm. Winograd also discovered an additively optimal Stras...

An interactive algorithm for multiobjective ranking for underlying linear and quasiconcave value functions
TEZCANER ÖZTÜRK, DİCLEHAN; Köksalan, Mustafa Murat (Wiley, 2019-07-29)
We develop interactive algorithms to find a strict total order for a set of discrete alternatives for two different value functions: linear and quasiconcave. The algorithms first construct a preference matrix and then find a strict total order. Based on the ordering, they select a meaningful pair of alternatives to present the decision maker (DM) for comparison. We employ methods to find all implied preferences of the DM, after he or she makes a preference. Considering all the preferences of the DM, the pre...
