Overview

The set of all prime numbers.

Example

Prime.each(100) do |prime|
  p prime  #=> 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, ...., 97
end

Retrieving the instance

Prime.new is obsolete. Now Prime has the default instance and you can access it as Prime.instance.

For convenience, each instance method of Prime.instance can be accessed as a class method of Prime.

e.g.

Prime.instance.prime?(2)  #=> true
Prime.prime?(2)           #=> true

Generators

A "generator" provides an implementation of enumerating pseudo-prime numbers and it remembers the position of enumeration and upper bound. Futhermore, it is a external iterator of prime enumeration which is compatible to an Enumerator.

Prime::PseudoPrimeGenerator is the base class for generators. There are few implementations of generator.

Prime::EratosthenesGenerator

Uses eratosthenes's sieve.

Prime::TrialDivisionGenerator

Uses the trial division method.

Prime::Generator23

Generates all positive integers which is not divided by 2 nor 3. This sequence is very bad as a pseudo-prime sequence. But this is faster and uses much less memory than other generators. So, it is suitable for factorizing an integer which is not large but has many prime factors. e.g. for Prime#prime? .

Instance Method Details

#each(ubound = nil, generator = EratosthenesGenerator.new, &block) ⇒ Object

Iterates the given block over all prime numbers.

Parameters

ubound

Optional. An arbitrary positive number. The upper bound of enumeration. The method enumerates prime numbers infinitely if ubound is nil.

generator

Optional. An implementation of pseudo-prime generator.

Return value

An evaluated value of the given block at the last time. Or an enumerator which is compatible to an Enumerator if no block given.

Description

Calls block once for each prime number, passing the prime as a parameter.

ubound

Upper bound of prime numbers. The iterator stops after yields all prime numbers p <= ubound.

Note

Prime.new returns a object extended by Prime::OldCompatibility in order to compatibility to Ruby 1.8, and Prime#each is overwritten by Prime::OldCompatibility#each.

Prime.new is now obsolete. Use Prime.instance.each or simply Prime.each.

  generator.upper_bound = ubound
  generator.each(&block)
end

#int_from_prime_division(pd) ⇒ Object

Re-composes a prime factorization and returns the product.

Parameters

pd

Array of pairs of integers. The each internal pair consists of a prime number -- a prime factor -- and a natural number -- an exponent.

Example

For [[p_1, e_1], [p_2, e_2], ...., [p_n, e_n]], it returns p_1**e_1 * p_2**e_2 * .... * p_n**e_n.

Prime.int_from_prime_division([[2,2], [3,1]])  #=> 12

def int_from_prime_division(pd)
  pd.inject(1){|value, (prime, index)|
    value *= prime**index
  }
end

#prime?(value, generator = Prime::Generator23.new) ⇒ Boolean

Returns true if value is prime, false for a composite.

Parameters

value

an arbitrary integer to be checked.

generator

optional. A pseudo-prime generator.

def prime?(value, generator = Prime::Generator23.new)
  value = -value if value < 0
  return false if value < 2
  for num in generator
    q,r = value.divmod num
    return true if q < num
    return false if r == 0
  end
end

#prime_division(value, generator = Prime::Generator23.new) ⇒ Object

Returns the factorization of value.

Parameters

value

An arbitrary integer.

generator

Optional. A pseudo-prime generator. generator.succ must return the next pseudo-prime number in the ascendent order. It must generate all prime numbers, but may generate non prime numbers.

Exceptions

ZeroDivisionError

when value is zero.

Example

For an arbitrary integer n = p_1**e_1 * p_2**e_2 * .... * p_n**e_n, prime_division(n) returns [[p_1, e_1], [p_2, e_2], ...., [p_n, e_n]].

Prime.prime_division(12) #=> [[2,2], [3,1]]

Raises:

  • (ZeroDivisionError)
