Exhaustive search methods for CNS polynomials

  • Péter Burcsi
  • Attila KovácsEmail author


In this paper, we present a method for finding all expansive polynomials with a prescribed degree n and constant term c 0. Our research is motivated by the fact that expansivity is a necessary condition for number system constructions. We use the algorithm for an exhaustive search of CNS polynomials for small values of n and c 0. We also define semi-CNS polynomials and show that producing them the same search method can be used.
