fast prime test?

Recommended Posts

i don't really understand why this is a fast test.firstly, you would need a number of terms about equal to the prime value.

that means a lot of multiplication

second you would need to divide by all those terms, also expensive.

i see no improvement to trail divide up to square root algorithm.
