    Re: Crelle's tables
    From: Lars Bergman

    Crelle's table is some 450 pages, and it gives the result directly for the multiplication of two integers less than 1000. With slightly more work, but only two and a half pages for a similar range, a table of "quarter squares" does the same job. Such a table (of total 14 pages covering integers up to 5100) is included in Chamber's Seven-Figure Mathematical Tables. It works on the fact that

    a·b = (a+b)2/4 - (a-b)2/4

    Find out a+b and a-b, look up their quarter squares in the table and take their difference.
