Hi all, and happy new year!

For our first meeting this year, we are going to change things up a little bit and try hosting downtown. Our meeting next week will be in the PIE office, located at 12th and NW Davis[1]. More details below..

Dana Jacobsen will give a talk on his number theory module. This is an early version of the talk for FOSDEM.

This talk describes the history, design, and implementation details of a number theory module for Perl. With implementations for most functions in C, C+GMP, and Perl this offers speed on most platforms as well as portability. Comparisons will be made with tools such as Pari/GP, SymPy, SAGE, Primo, OpenPFGW, and others.

See the full synopsis for more information[2].

PIE is next to the streetcar lines, within walking distance to the MAX, and the Brewery Parking Garage is across the street if you are driving. The entrance to the office is on Davis St, near 12th. We’ll be in the conference room to your left as you walk in, look for signs. We’ll migrate to Life of Riley or another venue after the meeting for food and drinks.
