Big Numbers: Examples

July 5, 2011

For our final exercise in the big-numbers series, we use the library to implement some algorithms: display the factorials to 50, compute the factors of a number using trial division, determine if a number is prime using the Miller-Rabin algorithm, and compute the factors of a prime using Pollard’s rho algorithm.

Your task is to implement these algorithms using the big-number library. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
