# Computational Algebra Seminar: Hart -- MPIR : a library for Multiple Precision Arithmetic

    The MPIR project is a library for multiple precision
integer and rational arithmetic, based on the GNU MP
library. Work on MPIR began about two years ago and
the library has just had its fifth major release. Since that
time multiple precision arithmetic has roughly doubled in speed.

I shall describe some of the recent algorithmic and
other improvements which have been made in the area,
as implemented in the MPIR library.
