Extended Euclidean Algorithm and CRT Algorithm

Open access


In this article we formalize some number theoretical algorithms, Euclidean Algorithm and Extended Euclidean Algorithm [9]. Besides the a gcd b, Extended Euclidean Algorithm can calculate a pair of two integers (x, y) that holds ax + by = a gcd b. In addition, we formalize an algorithm that can compute a solution of the Chinese remainder theorem by using Extended Euclidean Algorithm. Our aim is to support the implementation of number theoretic tools. Our formalization of those algorithms is based on the source code of the NZMATH, a number theory oriented calculation system developed by Tokyo Metropolitan University [8].
