A 251-bit prime field suitable for FFTs.
- Perfomance optimized for Native and WebAssembly
- Later: Constant-time operations.
const fnover procedural macros.
For optimization, there are a few different scenarios:
Note: The modulus is always assumed to be 256bit or less.
- Programmer time known fields. The programmer can supply hand tuned optimized implementations of various algorithms. Ideally well performing defaults are provided.
- Compiler time known fields. The compiler can compute constants, for example for Montgomery representation. The field parameters should be inlined.
- Statically runtime known fields. Modulus is not known during compilation (but it's size is). Element membership of a particular field is known at compile time. The field parameters should statically allocated and the pointers inlined.
- Dynamically runtime known fields. Modulus is not known during compilation (but its size is). Element membership of a particular field is not known at compile time. The field element should carry a pointer to the field parameters.
Checkout master branch:
cargo bench --bench benchmark -- --save-baseline master

Benchmarking using Mac OS' instrumentation. For this we need the
cargo-instruments plugin for Cargo.
cargo install cargo-instruments
You can then run tests under profiling. It is recommended to filter for a specific test.
cargo instruments --release --bench benchmark --open [test name]
