# Summary of Algebraic Structures

(hierarchy of objects)

# Applications of Bitwise Operations

• Representation of sets and operations on sets
(finite universal set, each bit position represents one element in the universal set)
• Storage and and check of properties
(finite set of properties, each bit position represents one specific property)
• Detailled operations on data
(example: data transformations, data compression)

Operations work on 8, 16, 32, or 64 bits concurrently

# Other Bitwise Operations

• Left shift:
• `b << n` in C and many other programming languages
• Shifts each of the bits in `b` by `n` positions to the left (more significant direction)
• `n` bits its on the right are set to 0
• The leftmost `n` bits in `b` disappear
• If there is no overflow (disappearing 1 bits), ```b << n``` is equivalent to b ×2n
• Right shift:
• `b >> n` in C and many other programming languages
• Shifts each of the bits in `b` by `n` positions to the right (less significant direction)
• `n` bits on the left are set to 0 or to the value of the leftmost bit in `b`,
depending on programming lanugage and data type
• The rightmost `n` bits in `b` disappear
• `b >> n` is equivalent to b / 2n

# Applications of Bitwise Operations

• In bitstring a, set bits from mask m:
`a | m`
• In bitstring a, clear bits from mask m:
`a & ~m`
• In bitstring a, invert bits from mask m:
`a ^ m`
• In bitstring a, set bit number n:
`a | (1<<n)` (rightmost bit is number 0)
• In bitstring a, clear bit number n:
`a & ~(1<<n)` (rightmost bit is number 0)
• In bitstring a, invert bit number n:
`a ^ (1<<n)` (rightmost bit is number 0)

For many more advanced examples, see Hacker's Delight, Henry S. Warren, Jr., Addison-Wesley, 2003

# Addition in Different Numeral Systems

Works the same as in decimal system:

• Progress from least signifinant digit to more significant digits
• Carry over when base (e.g. 10) is reached

Example (base 7):

 Operand 1 3 6 5 1 2 Operand 2 6 0 3 3 4 carry 1 1 1 Result 1 3 0 1 4 6

0 1
0 0 1
1 1 10
• For inputs a=a0 and b=b0, calculate
the digit-wise sum (without carry) as s0 = a0 `^` b0, and
the digit-wise carry as c0 = a0 `&` b0
• Setting a1 = s0 and b1 = c0 `<<` 1, repeat until c is 0
• Example: a0 = 1011101、b0 = 1101111

# Modular Arithmetic

• Discovered and published in 1801 by Gauss
• Universal set is ℤ (integers)
• congruence (equation):

a(mod n) ba - b = qna = q1n + rb = q2n + r ∧ 0 ≦ r < n

• n is called modulus (n≠0)
• r is called residue
• a(mod n) b is also written ab (mod n) or ab (modulo n) or an b

# Congruence Relation

• Each modulus n creates a congruence relation on ℤ
• Congruence relations are equivalence relations
• The equivalence classes are called congruence classes or residue class
• The representatives k of the congruence classes are usually 0 ≦ k < n
• The representatives are the result of the modulo operation (Attention: depends on definition for negative numbers)

# Properties of Congruence Equations

• abcda + cb + d (mod n)
• abcda - cb - d (mod n)
• abcdacbd (mod n)
• abambm (mod n)
• abcd a / cb / d (mod n)

# Properties of the Modulo Operation

• (a + c) mod n = (a mod n + c mod n) mod n (addition modulo n)
• (a - c) mod n = (a mod n - c mod n) mod n (substraction modulo n)
• (a · c) mod n = (a mod n · c mod n) mod n (multiplication modulo n)

Reason: a(mod n) a mod n, and so on

# Congruence and Groups

• Addition modulo n creates a group on the congruence classes
(cyclic group)
• Multiplication modulo n creates a group of size n-1 on the congruence classes except 0 if n is prime
(used e.g. in Diffie-Hellman encryption) 1 2 3 4 mod 5 1 2 3 4 2 4 1 3 3 1 4 2 4 3 2 1

# Congruence and Division

Division for rationals: a/b = ca b-1 = c; b b-1 = 1 (inverse)

Modular multiplicative inverse: bb-1 ≡ 1

n b 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
2 - 1
3 - 1 2
4 - 1 - 3
5 - 1 3 2 4
6 - 1 - - - 5
7 - 1 4 5 2 3 6
8 - 1 - 3 - 5 - 7

Only defined if n and b are coprime (i.e. GCD is 1)

Various methods to calculate

a/b (mod n) is defined as a b-1 (mod n)

Example: 3/4 (mod 7) = 3 · 4-1 (mod 7) = 3 · 2 (mod 7) = 6
(Check: 6 · 4 (mod 7) = 24 (mod 7) = 3)

# Modulo Operation

• Operator: `%` (C, Ruby and many other programming languages)、mod (Mathematics)
• Definitions for negative numbers: remainder for negative operands operands always non-negative same sign as divisor same sign as dividend a n q (a/n) 11 7 1 4 1 4 1 4 -11 7 -2 3 -2 3 -1 -4 11 -7 -1 4 -2 -3 1 4 -11 -7 2 3 1 -4 -1 -4 Programming languages,... Pascal, this lecture Ruby, Python, MS Excel C (ISO 1999), Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP
• In some programming languages (e.g. C before ISO 1999), the result is implementation-defined
• Some programming languages offer more than one function
• Always true: qn+r=a ∧ |r|<|n|
• an ba mod n = b mod n only true for "always non-negative"

See English Wikipedia article on Modulo Operation

# An Example of Using the Modulo Operation

Output some data items, three items on a line.

A simple way:

```int items = 0;
for (i=0; i<length; i++) {
/* print out data[i] */
items++;
if (items==3) {
printf("\n");
items = 0;
}
}```

Using the modulo operation:

```for (i=0; i<length; i++) {
/* print out data[i] */
if (i%3 == 2)  printf("\n");
}```

# Application of Congruence: Simple Calculation of Remainder

Example: 216 mod 29 = ?

216 = 25 · 25 · 25 · 2

216 = 25 · 25 · 25 · 2 = 32 · 32 · 32 · 2 ≡(mod 29) 3 · 3 · 3 · 2 = 54 ≡(mod 29) 25
