Bug#486671: ITP: ntl -- C++ library for arbitrary precision integers, vectors, matrices, and polynomials

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Bremner <bremner@unb.ca>

* Package name    : ntl
  Version         : 5.4.2
  Upstream Author : Victor Shoup <victor@shoup.net>
* URL             : http://www.shoup.net/ntl
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : arbitrary precision numbers, vectors, matrices and polynomials
  Vcs-Git: git://git.debian.org/git/debian-science/packages/ntl
  Vcs-Browser: http://git.debian.org/?p=debian-science/packages/ntl.git

(from the web site)

NTL provides algorithms for: 
    * arbitrary length integer arithmetic and arbitrary precision
     floating point arithmetic;
    * polynomial arithmetic over the integers and finite fields
     including basic arithmetic, polynomial factorization,
     irreducibility testing, computation of minimal polynomials,
     traces, norms, and more;
    * lattice basis reduction, including very robust and fast
      implementations of Schnorr-Euchner, block Korkin-Zolotarev
      reduction, and the new Schnorr-Horner pruning heuristic for
      block Korkin-Zolotarev;
    * basic linear algebra over the integers, finite fields, and
      arbitrary precision floating point numbers.

There is some very rough (i.e. at the moment only the -dev package has content) 
packaging in the debian-science repo; see above for URLs. 
Co-Maintainers welcome.
