If there be any lingering doubt in the mind of the reader as to the attractiveness and utility of algorithmic number theory, a glance at the large number of web sites that treat this topic should bring doubt to any such doubt at once, perhaps even by overwriting the reader’s cerebral registers. Just punch the search string “number theory” into your favorite Internet search engine, and up pop thousands of entries, a few of which have already been cited in this book. Many of these web sites contain links to available software packages or enable such packages to be downloaded. Such offers encapsulate a large bandwidth of functions for large-integer arithmetic, algebra, group theory, and number theory, demonstrating the efforts of many able and enthusiastic developers.
