We present an asymptotically fast algorithm for the numerical evaluation of modular functions such as the elliptic modular function j. Our algorithm makes use of the natural connection between the
Arbitrary-precision computation of the gamma function
The best methods available for computing the gamma function Γ(z) in arbitrary-precision arithmetic with rigorous error bounds are discussed and some new formulas, estimates, bounds and algorithmic improvements are presented.
An alternative to the Euler--Maclaurin formula: Approximating sums by integrals only
The Euler--Maclaurin (EM) summation formula is used in many theoretical studies and numerical calculations. It approximates the sum $\sum_{k=0}^{n-1} f(k)$ of values of a function $f$ by a linear

A note on the fast power series' exponential
It is shown that the exponential of a complex power series up to order n can be implemented via (23/12+o(1))M(n) binary arithmetic operations over complex field, where M(n) stands for the (smoothed)
A Simple Near-Linear Pseudopolynomial Time Randomized Algorithm for Subset Sum

A simple and elegant randomized algorithm for Subset Sum in Õ(n + t) time that actually solves its counting version modulo prime p > t, by manipulating generating functions using FFT.
The complexity of multiple-precision arithmetic
Upper and lower bounds on the number of single-precision operations required to perform various multiple-Precision operations are given, and some interesting consequences concerning the relative efficiencies of methods for solving nonlinear equations using variable-length multiple- Precision arithmetic are deduced.
The Borwein Brothers, Pi and the AGM
• R. Brent
• Computer Science, Mathematics
• 2017
It is shown that an iteration of the Borwein-Borwein quartic algorithm is equivalent to two iterations of the Gauss–Legendre quadratic algorithm for $$\pi), in the sense that they produce exactly the same sequence of approximations to \(\pi$$ if performed using exact arithmetic.
