Karatsuba multiplication

The time for direct multiplication is proportional to n² where n is the number of figures in the multiplicands x,y. When choosing a big base B=2ⁿ and and writing

xy=(x0+B*x1)(y0+B*y1)=x0y0 + (x0*y1+x1*y0)B + x1*y1*B²

there are four multiplications of smaller numbers, also here the calculation time is proportional to n². However


why it's enough to calculate three smaller multiplications 

x0*y0, x1*y1 and (x0+x1)(y0+y1). 

The multiplication with B are fast left shifting and if the shifting and the addition where cost free, the recursive Karatsuba multiplication would be very efficient

but unfortunately the extra math (and in Forth also some stack juggling) takes a lot of time and the method is efficient only for rather big numbers. For very big numbers, however, it's very efficient.

Here is the way I implemented it in ANS Forth:

: bcells* \ big m -- big*C^m
  cells top$ locals| n ad mb |
  ad ad mb + n move
  ad mb erase
  mb bvp @ +! ;
\ C is the number of digits in a cell

: bcells/ \ big m -- big/C^m
  cells top$ locals| n ad mb |
  ad mb + ad n move
  mb negate bvp @ +! ;

: bsplit \ w ad -- u v 
  dup nextfree < 
  if bvp @ dup @ vp+ bvp @ ! ! 
  else drop bzero
  then ;
\ A big number is split on the big stack at address ad

: btransmul \ x y -- x0 x1 y0 y1 m     B=2^bits 
  len1 len2 max cell + lcell 1+ rshift     \ m
  dup >r cells 
  >bx first over + bsplit 
  bx> first + bsplit r> ; 
\ x=x0+x1*B^m  y=y0+y1*B^m

How to use BigZ - part 2

Gaps in increasing sequences of natural numbers

Strictly increasing sequences as

(1,2,3,...), (2,3,5,7,11,13,...) and (1,2,4,8,16,...)

can partly be represented as sorted sets in BigZ. Differences of sequences is an analogy to differentiation of functions. When defining a function gapz, to be the sorted set of all gaps between consecutive numbers of a set, also gapz become an analogy of the derivative of functions.

Apply gapz on an arithmetic sequence gives a set with a single element. If n times apply gapz on an increasing polynomial series of degree n gives a singleton set. On a sequence of exponential function with base two does nothing to the infinite set.

  0 locals| n |        \ counts the number of gaps in s'

How to use BigZ - part 1

I've started to use the standard ANS-Forth notation for locals. It's a bit awkward but awkward in a forthish way. When I started this blog I wasn't aware of this notation.

Suppose there are numbers a b c d on the stack, then 

locals| d c b a | 

pop the values on the stack and store them in the locals. Normally there is no real need of locals in Forth, when factoring optimally, but when the stack is used for counted number series

n1 n2 ... nk k

locals is handy. And of course, locals could be used to uncomplicate algorithms.

The Pollard rho factoring routine for single cell numbers is fast, even in 64 bit systems, and can be used to define number theoretical functions. In BigZ the word

pollard# \ n -- p1 ... pk k

factorize the number and present it in a form that can be sorted by the word 

sort \ n1 ... nk k -- m1 ... mk k

: maxprimefactor \ n -- p
  pollard# sort
  over >r drops r> ;
drops \ n1 ... nk k --

The radical of a number can be defined easily by factoring, dropping all copies of prime factors and multiply the rest of the factors:

: radical \ n -- r 
  1 swap          \ just a value to be dropped at the end
  pollard# sort   \ p1 ... pk k  sorted with largest on top of stack
  1 swap 0        \ p1 ... pk 1   k 0
  do undequ       \ is two primes eual?
     if nip       \ drop the first of them (second on the stack)
     else *       \ multiply single prime 
  loop nip ;      \ drop the number "1" used by undequ

The word 

undequ \ a b c -- a b c flag 

compares the second and the third values on the stack and flag is true if a=b else false.

{ 1000000 1001000 | all }  ok
utime function radical transform-set utime d- d. -118123  ok

That is, transforming the set of the numbers {1000000,1000001,...,1000999} to the set of their radicals takes about a tenth of a second.

Now zdup cardinality . cr zet. gives

{10,42,1034,1158,1954,3910,4119, ... ,1000995,1000997,1000999} ok

(Non of the numbers appears to have the same radical).

Also, it is easy to define a test for square free numbers

: sqrfree \ n -- flag
  dup radical = ;

that's fairly fast

utime { 1 10000 | sqrfree } utime d- d. -2750161  ok

zdup cardinality . 6083  ok

cr zet.
{1,2,3,5,6,7,10,11,13,14,15, ... ,9993,9994,9995,9997,9998} ok

A nice word to analyse a sorted counted bundle of numbers of the stack is

: hist \ a1 ... ak k -- a1 ... ai i ak nk 
  2dup 0 locals| n k1 a k |
  begin dup a = k1 and
  while n 1+ to n 
     k1 1- to k1 drop
  repeat k n - a n ;

that counts the uppermost copies of the same number, leaving the remaining counted bundle under the histogram value ak nk on the top of the stack, indicating nk copies of the number ak.

For example, define a function theta that gives the greatest factor of n that is a sum of two squares. 

any prime of the form 4n+1 can be written as a sum of two squares;
the product of two squaresums is a squaresum;
for primes p of the form 4n+3, p^2i is of the form 0²+b².

The word squsumfac gives the contribution from the prime factor pk.

: squsumfac \ pk nk -- fac   fac=a²+b²
  over 3mod4 
  if dup odd if 1- then 
  then ** ;

: theta \ n -- m   
  dup 1 = if exit then 
  1 locals| m |
  oddpart dup 1 =            \ r s flag, where n=s*2^r, s odd.
  if swap lshift exit then 
  pollard# sort
  begin hist squsumfac
     m * to m dup 0=
  until drop m swap lshift ;

The sets in BigZ can't have big number members (yet) but it might be interesting to create sets of single number factors of big numbers.

\ testing for small (fast) single number divisors

The abc-conjecture 1

Suppose a, b and c are natural numbers such that a,b,c are mutual co-prime and a+b=c. Those triples are called abc-triplets. The abc-conjecture concern the unusual possibility that

(1) a+b>rad(ab(a+b))

where rad is the radical, the product of all unique prime factors of a number. I.e. rad(4)=2, rad(6)=6, rad(60)=30, rad(81)=3, rad(101)=101, ...

There is an infinite number of pairs (a,b) as (1), but given a real number epsilon>0 there seems to be only a finite number of abc-triplets (a,b,a+b) such that

(2) a+b>rad(ab(a+b))^(1+epsilon) 

and that's one version of the famous abc-conjecture.

: abcpair \ a b -- flag
  locals| b a |
  a b ugcd 1 =
  a b + 
  dup a ugcd 1 =
  swap b ugcd 1 =

test if (a,b,a+b) is a abc-triplet, and

This skip all (a,b) but those where (a,b,a+b) is a abc-triplet.

2dim unusual filter-set zdup cardinality . 32  ok

This is the remaining set of pairs such that (1):

zdup cr zet.
{(1,8),(1,48),(1,63),(1,80),(1,224),(1,242),(1,288),(1,512),(1,624),(1,675),(1,728),(1,960),(2,243),(3,125),(4,121),(5,27),(5,507),(7,243),(13,243),(25,704),(27,512),(32,49),(32,343),(49,576),(81,175),(81,544),(100,243),(104,625),(169,343),(200,529),(343,625),(640,729)} ok

Considering the pairs as Gaussian integers and transform the set of unusual pairs to their Gaussian norms give:

zdup 2dim gnorm transform-set zdup cardinality . cr zet. 32
{65,754,2305,3425,3970,6401,14657,15634,37186,50177,58565,59053,59098,59218,69049,82945,118673,146210,257074,262145,262873,302497,319841,334177,389377,401441,455626,496241,508274,529985,921601,941041} ok

Since the both sets have 32 elements I hasten to raise the conjecture:

(3) All (ordered) unusual pairs has unique Gaussian norms. 

To test the conjecture for different limits without stack overflow, conj3 works:

: abcunusual \ ab -- flag
  2dup abcpair 0= 
  if 2drop false
  else unusual
  then ;

: conj3 \ n -- set flag
  true locals| flag |
  0 >zst \ empty set on zst stack
  ?do i 1 
     ?do i j abcunusual 
        if i j gnorm dup zdup smember
           if false to flag drop i j pad 2! leave
           else >zst zfence union
     loop flag 0= if leave then
  loop flag ;

Instructions to create and manipulate sets

The basic words for sets are 

member \ element set -- flag
set= \ set1 set2 -- flag
subset \ set1 set2 -- flag

The parameters on the left sides above are located on the zst-stack. The 'element' could be a single (on the zst-stack) or a set. The flag is true or false on the ordinary stack. To check if a non negative single number on the parameter stack is a member in a set (located on the zst-stack), use the word

smember \ n set -- flag

3 { 1 2 3 4 } smember . -1  ok

Using member 

3 >zst { 1 2 3 4 } member . -1  ok

Except from set operations like

union \ s1 s2 -- s3
intersection \ s1 s2 -- s3
diff \ s1 s2 -- s3
powerset \ s1 -- s2     (s2 = set of all subsets of s1)
cartprod \ s1 s2 -- s3  (Cartesian product)
cardinality \ s1 -- n   (n = number of elements in s1)

and the possibility to create small sets

{ 10 10000 | prime } cardinality . 1225  ok

there are a lot of cryptic words to manipulate even rather big sets of non negative integers

intcond \ low hi xt -- | -- s   "intervall condition"
setcond \ xt -- | s -- s'       "set condition"
intimage \ low hi xt -- | -- s  "intervall image"
setimage \ xt -- | s -- s'      "set image"
paircond \ xt -- | s -- s'
pairimage \ xt -- | s -- s'
int2cond \ low hi n xt -- | -- s   "intervall two-condition"
int2image \ low hi n xt -- | -- s  "intervall image"
set2cond \ n xt -- | s -- s'       "set condition"
set2image \ n xt -- | s -- s'      "set image"

Inspired by the idea of orthogonal instructions I created a simple syntax just for set manipulations, to summarize and simplify the use of the words above:

variable zp

variable cf2

: condition  ' 0 cf2 ! sp@ zp ! ;
: function  ' 2 cf2 ! sp@ zp ! ;
: 2dim  ' -1 cf2 ! sp@ zp ! ;
: syntax  sp@ zp @ - 0= if 0 0 else 1 then cf2 @ ;

The word syntax check the number of input parameters and put a dummy parameter on the stack when needed.

(I have started to use the ANS-Forth notation for locals and will reform the code and the blog. It's awkward, but "forthish" awkward since it loads the parameters in the reversed direction: 

k l m n locals| n m l k |

It has some advantages even if it looks strange.)

The ten cryptic words are now squeezed into the three words


\ e.g. 1 20 condition < 7 create-set

: create-set \ m n xt nr -- set
  syntax locals| cf k nr xt n m |
  k cf or
  case 0 of m n xt intcond endof
       1 of m n nr xt int2cond endof
       2 of m n xt intimage endof
       3 of m n nr xt int2image endof
  endcase ;

\ e.g. condition > 5 filter-set
: filter-set \ set xt nr -- set'
  syntax locals| cf k nr xt |
  cf 0< if xt paircond exit then k
  case 0 of xt setcond endof
       1 of nr xt set2cond endof
  endcase ;

\ e.g. 2dim + transform-set
: transform-set \ set xt nr -- set'
  syntax locals| cf k nr xt |
  cf 0< if xt pairimage exit then k
  case 0 of xt setimage endof
       1 of nr xt set2image endof
  endcase ;

Creating sets:

1 25 condition prime create-set cr zet.

{2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23} ok

10 29 condition coprime 6 create-set cr zet.
{11,13,17,19,23,25} ok

1 10 function 2* create-set cr zet.

{2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18} ok

1 10 function * 3 create-set cr zet.
{3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27} ok

The word after condition/function must be a defined condition or function for one or two parameters.

Filter sets:

{ 1 25 | all } condition odd filter-set cr zet.
{1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23} ok

{ 1 25 | all } condition < 10 filter-set cr zet.
{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} ok

{ 1 2 3 } zdup cartprod zdup cr zet.
{(3,3),(3,2),(3,1),(2,3),(2,2),(2,1),(1,3),(1,2),(1,1)} ok
2dim < filter-set cr zet.
{(1,2),(1,3),(2,3)} ok

Transform sets:

{ 1 100 | prime } function 2* transform-set  ok
function 1- transform-set  ok
condition prime filter-set cr zet.
{3,5,13,37,61,73,157,193} ok

1 1000000 condition prime create-set  ok
condition < 50 filter-set  ok
function + 2 transform-set cr zet.
{4,5,7,9,13,15,19,21,25,31,33,39,43,45,49} ok

{ 1 10 | odd } zdup cartprod  ok
2dim + transform-set cr zet.
{2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18} ok

The word 2dim works like condition and function but acts on a set of pairs and can be used both for 2-dim conditions and 2-dim functions.

So far those instructions don't works in definitions and they just works for numbers and pairs of numbers.

String operations and bioinformatics

Strings makes it possible to generalize the concept of sets. In BigZ a set is a nested set of nested sets and lists like

{ 123 ( 234 { 345 456 { 567 678 } } ) } cr zet. 
{123,(234,{345,456,{567,678}})} ok

and the only lack of generality concern the atomic elements, which must be non negative single numbers. But virtually anything can be denoted as a string which can be interpreted as a list of characters:

s" {Hello world!,How are you?}" >str stringset>zet cr zet.
{(72,101,108,108,111,32,119,111,114,108,100,33),(72,111,119,32,97,114,101,32,121,111,117,63)} ok
In this way also sets of big integers, Gaussian integers etc can be elements of sets.

A nice way to handle strings in Forth is using a string stack, which in this implementation consists of two stacks, one for the arrays of ASCII signs and one for addresses to the arrays of signs.

>str \ ad n -- string    Push a string on the stack
str> \ string -- ad n    Pop a string from the stack
str@ \ string -- string | -- ad n

sempty \ string -- string | -- flag
.str \ --  Prints the stack without changing it
str. \ str --  Print and drop the topmost element

sdup sdrop sover snip sswap srot stuck spick does the normal operations.
soover \ str1 str2 str3 -- str1 str2 str3 str1
A shorter way to enter strings from commando line is
s Hello world"
However, in definitions one must use 
s" Hello world" >str
Some words for string manipulations:
s& \ s1 s2 -- s1&s2   Concatenation
sleft \ s1 -- s2 | n --  Skip all but the n leftmost characters
sright \ s1 -- s2 | n -- The samr for the n rightmost chars
ssplit \ s -- s' s" | n --  split string after the nth letter
sanalyze \ s1 s2 -- s1 s3 s1 s4 / s2 | -- flag 
split s2 if s1 is a part of s2 and if true flag then s2=s3&s1&s4.
substring \ s1 s2 -- s1 s2 | -- flag
sreplace \ s1 s2 s3 -- s4    Replace s2 with s1 in s3
scomp \ s1 s2 -- | -- n    -1:s1>s2, +1:s1<s2, 0:s1=s2
snull \ -- emptystring
schr& \ s -- s' | ch --   Concatenate ch to top string
slen= \ s1 s2 -- | -- flag   Test if same length
strail \ s -- s'  Remove trailing spaces
>capital \ ch -- ch'  Change common to capital
>common \ ch -- ch'  The oposite 
capital \ ch --flag  Test if capital letter
common \ ch -- flag  Test if common letter
slower \ s -- s'  Change to lower in string
supper \ s -- s'  Opposite as above
str>ud \ s -- s' | -- ud flag   Unsigned double from string
str>d \ s -- s' | -- d flag     Double from string
snobl \ s -- s'      Remove all blanks
sjustabc \ s -- s'   Remove all signs but eng. letters
alphabet \ s -- s'   Gives the alphabet of string
zet>stringset \ set -- string
stringset>zet \ string -- set
sunion \ str1 str2 -- str3
sintersection \ str1 str2 -- str3
sdiff \ str1 str2 -- str3
s {brown,red,orange,yellow,green}"  ok
s {blue,violet,brown,black}"  ok
sunion str. {black,brown,violet,blue,green,yellow,orange,red} ok
hamming \ s1 s2 -- s1 s2 | n   The Hamming distance
editdistance \ s1 s2 -- s1 s2 | n   The Levenshtein distance

This code is now included in the BigZ code.
