Lattices are periodic arrangements of points in space that have attracted the attention of mathematicians for over two centuries. They have recently become an object of even greater interest due to their remarkable applications in cryptography. In this talk we will survey some of this progress and describe the somewhat mysterious role that quantum computing plays in the area.
