This volume contains the proceedings of the AMS Special Session on Algorithmic Problems of Group Theory and Their Complexity, held January 9-10, 2013 in San Diego, CA and the AMS Special Session on Algorithmic Problems of Group Theory and Applications to Information Security, held April 6-7, 2013 at Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA.
Over the past few years the field of group-based cryptography has attracted attention from both group theorists and cryptographers. The new techniques inspired by algorithmic problems in non-commutative group theory and their complexity have offered promising ideas for developing new cryptographic protocols. The papers in this volume cover algorithmic group theory and applications to cryptography.
