Prime Numbers: A Computational Perspective
Richard Crandall and Carl Pomerance, 2001, Springer-Verlag, 545 pp., hardcover.
A reference for professionals interested in prime numbers and encryption, cryptography, factoring algorithms, elliptic curve arithmetic, and many more computational issues related to primes and factoring. The text focuses on the computational aspects of finding, testing, and characterizing prime numbers. The theoretically interesting, aesthetic, and practical aspects of primes are discussed. The reference provides theoretical explanations that explain the practical power of the computational algorithms. Detailed pseudocode and exercises that are designed to keep the student engaged and interested are also included.
