Citing FLINT

If your research depends on computations done with FLINT, please consider giving a formal citation.

You may cite the software itself (optionally a specific version of FLINT), for example using the following format:

    author = {W. Hart and F. Johansson and S. Pancratz},
    title = {{FLINT}: {F}ast {L}ibrary for {N}umber {T}heory},
    year = {2013},
    note = {Version 2.4.0, \url{http://flintlib.org}}

You may also choose to cite this peer-reviewed article:

    author = {W. B. Hart},
    title = {{Fast Library for Number Theory: An Introduction},
    booktitle = {Proceedings of the Third International Congress
        on Mathematical Software},
    series = {ICMS'10},
    year = {2010},
    location = {Kobe, Japan},
    pages = {88--91},
    numpages = {4},
    publisher = {Springer-Verlag},
    address = {Berlin, Heidelberg},
    note = {\url{http://flintlib.org}}

If you depend on a specific algorithm, please also consider citing the paper where that algorithm is described (if available).
