Algebraic integers and prime ideal decomposition
I research algebraic integers, which are an expanded concept of integers. Prime numbers and prime factorization are referred to as prime ideals and prime ideal decomposition in algebraic integers. This is a traditional field with a long history in pure mathematics, but in recent years applications in practical fields such as cryptography have become more numerous.
I educate with a consciousness of the importance and responsibility in teaching mathematics, which forms the foundation of every field in science and engineering. I think every student should learn the difference between fundamental learning and application.
