Approaches for Further Extensions

Abstract

Although we now have at our disposal a software package with a well-founded and well-rounded suite of functions, we confront now the question of in what directions our work might be continued. There are possibilities for work in the areas of functionality and performance. With regard to functionality, one can imagine the application of the basic functions in FLINT/C to areas that have been only touched upon or not even mentioned at all, such as factorization or elliptic curves, which have properties that have led to increasing interest in them for application to cryptography. The interested reader can find detailed explications in [Bres], [Kobl], and [Mene], but also in the standard works [Coke], [Schn], and [MOV], which we have cited frequently and which contain many references to the literature.
