### Abstract

Abstract 0 binary, I-binary: The binary GCD algorithm We compare the executron times of several algo-ixtliiiis for computing the G‘C‘U of arbitrary precasion iirlegers. These algorithms are the known ones (Eucli-dean, brnary, plus-mrnus), and the improved variants of these for multidigit compzltation (Lehmer and simi-lar), as well as new algorithms introduced by the aut-hor: an improved Lehmer algorithm using two digits in partial cosequence computation, and a generalization of the binary algorithm using a new concept of “m.0-dalar conjugates”. The last two algorithms prove to be the fastest of all, giving a speed-,up of 6 to 8 times over th.e classical Euclidean scheme, and 2 times over the best currently known algorathins. Also, the generalized binary algorithm is suitable for systolic parallelization, an “least-significant digits first ” pipelined manner. 1

We applied instead the “exact division” scheme described in =-=[9]-=-, which works like this: Let be d = length(A) - length(B) and u,b the trailing d bits of A, B. Set c = (U * b-’) mod 2d. Then C = (A - c * B)/2d is (roughly) d bits shorter than A. Hence, the generali... |
