GMP (Library)

Due to scheduled power outages at multiple SHARCNET institutions, several clusters (angel, copper, guppy, mako, mosaic, orca, redfin and saw) as well as global /work are currently unavailable and will return to service no later than 1 pm. Monday May 2.
We will use this outage to perform some much needed maintenance on a number of critical systems.

Other clusters will remain up but any jobs that require access to /work will crash. Users should only submit jobs requiring access to /home and /scratch

Introduction

GNU MP is a portable library written in C for arbitrary precision arithmetic on integers, rational numbers, and floating-point numbers. It aims to provide the fastest possible arithmetic for all applications that need higher precision than is directly supported by the basic C types. The main target applications for GMP are cryptography applications and research, Internet security applications, algebra systems, computational algebra research, etc.
