PARI/GP is a widely used computer algebra system designed for fast computations in number theory (factorizations, algebraic number theory, elliptic curves...). It also contains a large number of functions for computing with matrices, polynomials, power series, algebraic numbers etc., and a lot of transcendental functions.
- PARI is a C library, allowing fast computations
- gp is an easy-to-use interactive shell giving access to the PARI functions
- GP is the name of gp's scripting language
- Math::Pari provides a perl interface to PARI
