A Tour of NTL: Acknowledgements
Thanks to Arjen Lenstra
for letting me use their software.
Arjen Lenstra wrote LIP, a long integer package, which formed
the basis of NTL.
Keith Briggs developed a quadratic precision package.
NTL has incorporated parts of these two packages, although
what is in NTL has been extensively re-written.
Thanks also to Keith for many helpful comments and suggestions.
for pointing out the deficiency in the NTL-1.0 ZZX arithmetic,
for contributing the Schoenhage/Strassen code to NTL 1.5,
and for helping to track down some bugs.
Phong Nguyen for
putting the new LLL code (NTL 1.7) through a torture test of
lattices arising from new lattice-based cryptosystems; this
led to a number of significant improvements in the LLL code.
Thanks to Dan Boneh
for encouraging me to improve NTL's
Thanks to John Abbott,
Mark van Hoeij,
for sharing many of their ideas about
polynomial factoring over ZZ with me, which
led to a number of improvements in NTL's factorizer.
Thanks also to Paul for numerous other suggestions and improvements.
Joachim von zur Gathen
for their collaboration and support over the years.
