Brigitte Vallée (née Salesse) (born 6 June 1950, in Courbevoie, Hauts-de-Seine, France) is a French mathematician and computer scientist. She entered the École Normale Supérieure de Jeunes Filles in 1970, and received her PhD in 1986 at the University of Caen (Lattice reduction algorithms in small dimensions). Her doctoral advisor was Jacques Stern. In the early 90s, Brigitte Vallée's work on small modular squares allowed her to hold the fastest factorisation algorithm with a proved probabilistic complexity bound. Nowadays, other factorisation algorithms are faster.
