2. Download SSCLN

The short C++ programs in this package use very fast functions in the CLN
(and GMP) packages to calculate some mathematical constants. The results
are interesting in themselves but can also be used to verify calculations
with other programs.

3. Download SSPROG

All the programs in this package work fine in DOS (or CMD) mode under Windows XP,
2000 and probably also Windows 98. And also Windows 7 32-bit. And of course under
Linux if you compile the source code.

Important note. The Windows executables compiled with DJGPP under 32-bit
Windows XP DO NOT work on 64-bit Windows operating systems! The author
will investigate the best way how to solve this problem to the next release of
the package. Until then only version 2.26 (with 32-bit executables) is available
for Windows. The author will among other compilers test Microsoft Visual C/C++
Express Studio Edition 2008 which can be downloaded for free here.

Microsoft Visual Studio Express Edition

Note. The Unix and Linux package now includes cbrun2l32, cbrun2l64, cbrun3l32
and cbrun3l64 executables for Linux (in the PRIMES directory) compiled using
Intel C/C++ 11.1 (icc) with the "-pc80" (long double) option. Versions are
available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Linux. The executables are compiled for
Intel Pentium 3, Pentium 4 and Core 2 Duo processors. Some of them work
well also on AMD CPUs.

4. π, Chudnovsky or Ramanujan

This program calculates π to many decimal places using Chudnovsky or Ramanujan series. Very fast!
The program uses a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!

New! June 19 2012. Here is now available an updated version of sspi.c called sspi2.c. Most
of the new work was done already January 2010. Parts of the code (the procedures) now
have "how to use" comments and ladd, lsub, bigadd, bigsub and some other procedures
have temporary variables so that both input and output variables can be the same. The rest
of the code could benefit somewhat from that, but it is not changed. The programs on
this web-page are now mostly of historical interest, because much faster programs for
mathematical constants computations exist on the web that also use multi core support.


5. e=exp(1) and ln(2)

This program calculates e=exp(1) and ln(2) to many decimal places. Very fast!
The program uses a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!


6. Euler C, γ

This program calculates Euler C, γ to many decimal places. Very fast!

7. Γ(1/3) and Γ(1/4)

This program calculates Γ(1/3) and Γ(1/4) to many decimal places using AGM.
The program uses a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!


8. Catalan's constant G

This program calculates Catalan's constant G to many decimal places. Very fast!
The program uses a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!


9. Apery's constant ζ(3)

This program calculates Apery's constant ζ(3) to many decimal places. Very fast!

10. ζ(s)

This program calculates ζ(s) (for integer s ≥ 2) to many decimal places. Very fast!
The program uses a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!


11. A program to calculate some mathematical constants to large precision

This program uses some (not that fast) AGM based algorithms.
The program uses a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!


12. Other e=exp(1) calculating programs

Fast floating point method, might be numerically unstable:

Slower floating point method, probably numerically stable:

Long long int (64 bit) integer method, numerically stable:


13. Fast hexadecimal e=exp(1) calculating programs

Some of these programs use a very fast FFT (fftsg_h.c) by Takuya Ooura. Many thanks to him!

Chose the program that is fastest on your computer:

The following program is also needed for the final result:

Programs to convert from hexadecimal to decimal:


14. Digit statistics

Why not check if the digits seem to have a normal distribution:


15. Factorial

This program calculates large factorials (n!) exactly:


16. Prime numbers

All the prime number programs use a segmented implementation of Eratosthenes sieve.
They are very fast and require very little memory.

These two programs works theoretically for n ≤ 253-19.0·1015.

This program calculates (and print) all primes below n.

This program makes a table of the number of primes and twin primes below n.

These programs calculate Bruns constant and the Twin prime constant and the number
of primes and twin primes below n. Works theoretically for n ≤ 264-11.8·1019.
(using long double numbers). The programs cbrun2l* and cbrun3l* are significantly
faster than cbrunl for large n (≥ 1010).

Some results from the programs.


17. Sorting

Quick sort (very fast, non recursive and recursive):
