Mploc is a C library for computing in p -adic fields and their unramified extensions. The focus is mainly on for prime p , and unramified extensions of . The ability to compute in these structures is important to several applications, such as point counting or building curves with a prescribed number of points.
The Mploc library is already distributed(http://www.loria.fr/~thome/software/mploc ) and used, although several performance improvements are sought. The library presently gathers 8,000 lines of C source code.
