A Better Way to Multiply

Useful for cryptography and methods that require fast hashing on IOT edge applications?

Mathematicians Discover the Perfect Way to Multiply  in Quanta Magazine

By chopping up large numbers into smaller ones, researchers have rewritten a fundamental mathematical speed limit.

On March 18, two researchers described the fastest method ever discovered for multiplying two very large numbers. The paper marks the culmination of a long-running search to find the most efficient procedure for performing one of the most basic operations in math.

“Everybody thinks basically that the method you learn in school is the best one, but in fact it’s an active area of research,” said Joris van der Hoeven, a mathematician at the French National Center for Scientific Research and one of the co-authors. ... "
