Abstract/Artist's Statement

The Brin-Thompson group 2V is a simple, finitely presented group of functions with solvable word problem and unsolvable torsion problem, which makes it a promising platform group for the Anshel-Anshel-Goldfeld key agreement protocol. The primary results of this project are an implementation of 2V and the AAG protocol in Java, which is shown to be susceptible to the heuristic length based attack.
