Does ECM at yoyo@home exploit base2 arithmetic?
Quote:
Is the base 2 modular arithmetic optimization turned on? Also note that one can optimize arithmetic for 2LM as well. Does GMPECM do this? It is very worthwhile. e.g. to reduce C mod (2^n1) put C = A*2^n + B = A*2^n  A + B + A == (B + A) mod (2^n1). Thus, modular reduction only takes a shift and an add. For C mod (2^n+1) one gets B  A. to reduce C mod (2^x + 2^y + 1) put C = A*2^x + B. Now add and subtract A*2^y and add and subtract A: C = A*2^x + A*2^y + A + B 2^y A  A. Thus C mod (2^x + 2^y + 1) == B  A*2^y  A. This is much faster than Montgomery multiplication.

Moved here a) because of a request and b) it is more appropriate here anyway.

Is this equivalent to asking whether the GMPECM binary is built using gwnum?

If you want an authoritative answer I suggest that you contact the GMPECM developers.

*building* of the library. Quote:
distributes its wu's. It is clear that GMPECM does not have an option to speed 2LM arithmetic.

implemented. IT *does* implement fast 2^n1 and 2^n+1 modular reductions. But that does not tell us whether YoYo *invokes* the option. I specifically asked about YoYo's use. It does not seem to implement fast 2LM arithmetic. Indeed. Fast 2LM arithmetic can be generalized to fast modular reductions for any moduli with very low Hamming weight.

I believe that it can autodetect that the base 2 code is needed. I don't know how good it is at that for cofactors.
