Title: Quadratic Dynamical Systems over Finite Fields

Abstract: We will discuss quadratic dynamical systems over finite fields, which have wide-ranging applications in primality checking, integer factorisation, and pseudo-random number generation. In particular we will explore why $f(x) = x^2$ and $g(x) = x^2 - 2$ are special amongst the quadratic dynamical systems.
