LLLplus provides lattice tools such as Lenstra-Lenstra-Lovász (LLL) lattice reduction which are of practical and theoretical use in cryptography, digital communication, integer programming, and more. This package is experimental and not a robust tool; use at your own risk :-)

LLLplus has functions for LLL,
Seysen, and
Hermite-Korkine-Zolotarev
lattice reduction
techniques. Brun
integer relations is included in the form of lattice
reduction. A solver for the closest
vector
problem is also included; for more see the help text for the `lll`

,
`seysen`

, `hkz`

, `brun`

, and `cvp`

functions. Several toy (demo)
functions are also included; see the `subsetsum`

, `minimalpolynomial`

,
`integerfeasibility`

, `rationalapprox`

, and `spigotBBP`

functions.

**Basic Examples** (click for details)

Each function contains documentation and examples available via Julia's
built-in documentation system (try `?lll`

or `@doc(lll)`

). Documentation
for all functions is available. A tutorial notebook is
found in the `docs`

directory or on
nbviewer.

Here are a few examples of using the functions in the package on random lattices.

```
Pkg.add("LLLplus")
using LLLplus
# do lattice reduction on a matrix with randn entries
N = 40;
H = randn(N,N);
Bbrun,_ = brun(H);
Blll,_ = lll(H);
Bseysen,_ = seysen(H);
Bhkz,_ = hkz(H);
# check out the CVP solver
Q,Rtmp=qr(H); R = UpperTriangular(Rtmp);
u=Int.(rand(0:1e10,N));
y=H*u+rand(N)/100;
uhat=cvp(Q'*y,R);
sum(abs.(u-uhat))
```

**Execution Time results** (click for details)

To give a flavor of the behavior of the functions in LLLplus,
we show execution time for several built-in datatypes (Int32,
Int64, Int128, Float32, Float64, BitInt, and BigFloat) as well as type
from external packages (Float128 from
Quadmath.jl and Double64
from DoubleFloat.jl)
which are used to generate 100 16x16 matrices with elements uniformly
distributed over `-100`

to `100`

. The figure shows average execution
time when using these matrices as input lattice bases for several
functions from LLLplus. See `test/perftest.jl`

for the code to
regenerate the figure and for another line of code that generates a
figure of execution time versus basis dimension.

**Notes** (click for details)

The 2020 Simons Institute lattice workshop, a survey paper by Wuebben, and the monograph by Bremner were helpful in writing the tools in LLLplus and are good resources for further study. If you are trying to break one of the Lattice Challenge records or are looking for robust, well-proven lattice tools, look at fplll. Also, for many number-theoretic problems the Nemo.jl package is appropriate; it uses the FLINT C library to do LLL reduction on Nemo-specific data types. Finally, no number theorists or computer scientists have worked on LLLplus; please treat the package as experimental.
