Lecture Ii the Gcd

  title={Lecture Ii the Gcd},
Next to the four arithmetic operations, the greatest common denominator (GCD) is perhaps the most basic operation in algebraic computing. The proper setting for discussing GCD's is in a unique factorization domain (UFD). For most common UFDs, that venerable algorithm of Euclid is available. In the domains Z and F [X], an efficient method for implementing Euclid's algorithm is available. It is the so-called half-GCD approach, originating in ideas of Lehmer, Knuth and Schönhage. The presentation… Expand

An algorithm which computes the quotient of two long integers in this particular situation, starting from the least-significant digits of the operands, which is better suited for systolic parallelization in a "least-significant digit first" pipelined manner. Expand
The Subresultant PRS Algorithm
A corollary of the fundamental theorem of subresuitants is given here, which leads to a simple derivation and deeper understanding of the subresultant PRS algorithm and converts a conjecture mentioned in the earher papers into an elementary remark. Expand

This algorithm has the advantage of factoring nonmonic polynomials without inordinately increasing the amount of work, essentially by allowing denominators in the coefficients of the polynomial and its factors. Expand

An integer greatest common divisor (GCD) algorithm due to Schönhage is generalized to hold in all euclidean domains which possess a fast multiplication algorithm and a new faster algorithm for multivariate polynomial GCD's can be derived. Expand
