Title PrimeQ
Description Based on the Rabin-Miller probabilistic primality test this remarkable program takes primality testing on the TI-83+ to the next level. For large numbers, this program finds primes over 20 times faster than the fastest trial division programs ( e.g. - primec.zip). "Probabilistic" means the program declares a prime with high certainty but not quite 100% due to the existence of composite numbers known as strong pseudoprimes. However, the program will continue conducting tests, approaching 100% ever closer, until a primality proof is established. For large numbers, such a proof is still up to 6 times faster than the fastest trial division programs. As an example, 1013279437 is PROVED to be prime in 16 seconds! Under 400 bytes!
