Prime Number Generation in Perl
speaker: Dana Jacobsen
Dana will give a brief introduction to primes, primality testing, and
sieves, then show examples in Perl. Dana is the author of the
Math::Prime::Util module on CPAN.
* Primality testing in Perl
* 15 sieve implementations in Perl including a new string-based sieve
* 6 CPAN modules
* Performance and memory use
* Prime Counting
Sadly a lot of the web examples of Perl sieves are quite bad, often 3-6x
slower than Perl can do. We can do better! There are also a number of
CPAN modules related to primes, which will briefly be covered.
As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the lucky lab.
