### Multiplying integers

The classical algorithm, that everyone knows from elementary school, for multiplying two n-digit integers runs in $$O(n^2)$$-time. Recently, there was a preprint posted on HAL (link) in which the authors provide an algorithm which runs in $$O(n\log(n))$$-time. A nice article about this discovery may be found at the QuantaMagazine: link. Further, it was also recently proven in another preprint … Continue reading "Multiplying integers"
