A description of 148 algorithms primary to number-theoretic computations, specifically for computations on the topic of algebraic quantity concept, elliptic curves, primality checking out and factoring. the 1st seven chapters consultant readers to the guts of present learn in computational algebraic quantity idea, together with contemporary algorithms for computing classification teams and devices, in addition to elliptic curve computations, whereas the final 3 chapters survey factoring and primality trying out tools, together with an in depth description of the quantity box sieve set of rules. the complete is rounded off with an outline of accessible machine applications and a few precious tables, subsidized by way of quite a few routines. Written by means of an expert within the box, and one with nice functional and educating event, this can be guaranteed to turn into the traditional and necessary reference at the topic.

6 and terminate. Otherwise, let ii (resp. b) be the single precision number formed by the p most significant digits of a (resp. b). ° 3. [Test quotient] If b+ C = or b+ D = 0 go to step 5. Otherwise, set q t- L(a + A)/(b + C)J. If q ~ L(a + B)/(b + D)J, go to step 5. 4. [Euclidean step] Set T t- A - qC, A t- C, Ct- T, T t- B - qD, B t- D, D t- T, T t- ii - qb, ii t- b, b t- T and go to step 3 (all these operations are single precision operations). 5. [Multi-precision step] If B = 0, set q t- la/bJand simultaneously t t- a mod b using multi-precision division, then a t- b, b t- t, t t- U-qVI, U t- VI, VI t- t and go to step 2.

Compute local order) While gl 2. i- 1, set gl ~ gr i and e ~ e . Pi. Go to step Note that we need the complete factorization of h for this algorithm to work. This may be difficult when the group is very large. Let p be a prime. To find a primitive root modulo p there seems to be no better way than to proceed as follows. Try 9 = 2, 9 = 3, etc ... until 9 is a primitive root. One should avoid perfect powers since if 9 = g~, then if 9 is a primitive root, so is go which has already been tested. To see whether 9 is a primitive root, we could compute the order of 9 using the above algorithm.

This would give a feel for the difficulty of the problem. e. primes p == 3 (mod 4). 1. Indeed, since a(p- 1 l/2 == 1 (mod p) hence a is a quadratic residue, we have x2 == a(p+1)/2 == a. a(p-l)/2 == a (mod p) as claimed. e. primes p == 5 (mod 8). Since we have a(p-l)/2 == 1 (mod p) and since lFp = Zip'll, is a field, we must have a(p-l)/4 == ±1 (mod p) . Now, if the sign is +, then the reader can easily check as above that x= a(p+3)/8 (mod p) is a solution. 7, we know that 2(p-l)/2 == -1 (mod p).
