PARI-GP - a software package for computer-aided number theory

PARI-GP is a software package for computer-aided number theory.

Originally developed at Bordeaux by a team led by Henri Cohen, PARI-GP is now maintained by Karim Belabas at the Université Paris-Sud Orsay with the help of many volunteer contributors.
