About Nemo

Nemo is a library for fast basic arithmetic in various commonly used rings, for the Julia programming language. Our aim is to provide a highly performant package covering

Nemo consists of wrappers of specialised C/C++ libraries:

Nemo also uses AbstractAlgebra.jl to provide generic constructions over the basic rings provided by the above packages.

Why Julia?

Julia is a sophisticated, modern programming language which is designed to be both performant and flexible. It was written by mathematicians, for mathematicians.

The benefits of Julia include

The main benefits for Nemo are the parametric type system and JIT compilation. The former allows us to model many mathematical types, e.g. generic polynomial rings over an arbitrary base ring. The latter speeds up the runtime performance, even of highly generic mathematical procedures.
