Binary Cubic Forms and Cubic Number Fields 
Talk: 
Binary Cubic Forms and Cubic Number Fields 
Abstract: 
The aim of this paper is to present in a naive manner a small
part of the theory of binary cubic forms and in particular its
application to cubic number fields. Most of the results are due to
DavenportHeilbronn , but the algorithmic applications seem to
be new.

Born: 
France 
Research Interests: 
Henri's research interests include number theory, and in particular
modular forms, algebraic number theory and computational number
theory. He is also very much involved with multiprecision packages
and symbolic algebra systems. He is the author and main coordinator
of the number theory package PariGP, and has written a basic
textbook describing most of the algorithms included in this package.
Henri Cohen is a professor at the Laboratoire d'algorithmique
Arithmetique et Experimentale (A2X) at the University Bordeaux I. 
Other Interests: 
Henri's main hobby is choir singing (classical repertoire), which
he does around 8 hours a week.

Comments: 
I am fascinated by the two worlds which mathematics encompasses:
the analytical world of rigor and form, and the artistic world
of creativity and intuition.
