Jeffrey Hoffstein
Jeffrey Ezra Hoffstein (* 1953 in New York City ) is an American mathematician who studies analytical number theory and automorphic forms.
Hoffstein studied at Cornell University ( bachelor's degree 1974) and received his doctorate in 1978 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under Harold Stark ( Class numbers of totally complex quadratic extensions of totally real fields ). As a post-doctoral student , he was at the Institute for Advanced Study and the University of Cambridge . From 1980 to 1982 he was JD Tamarkin Assistant Professor at Brown University , became Assistant Professor in 1982 and later Associate Professor at the University of Rochester, and has been Professor at Brown University since 1989.
He investigates L-series to automorphic forms via GL (n) and number fields with analytical and algebraic methods. Among other things, he developed the technique of multiple Dirichlet series. He was visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study (1978/79, 1985, 1986/87) and at the MSRI , where he led special conference series for automorphic functions for a year in 1994/95, at the University of Göttingen (1996) and at the University of Texas at Austin (visiting professor 1984).
With Jill Pipher and Joseph Silverman , he developed a public key crypto process ( NTRUEncrypt ), which he also markets as a co-founder of NTRU Cryptosystems (1996). To this end, he founded a company in 1996 with Pipher, Silverman and his doctoral student Daniel Lieman.
In 1984 he was a Fulbright Fellow .
