|Computing a system of fundamental units|
I have an irreducible polynomial in Z[x], P say, of degree 31 or higher and I want to compute a system of fundamental units for the number filed K defined by this polynomial over Q. I know that bnfinit(P,1) will output a set of fundamental units, but I am wondering if there is a more efficient/less time-consuming way to do it, since I do not need any of the other information that bnfinit generates about K. Can anyone suggest some more efficient code? Thanks. Jimmy Mc Laughlin.
