GCDHEU: Heuristic polynomial GCD algorithm based on integer GCD computation. A heuristic algorithm, GCDHEU, is described for polynomial GCD computation over the integers. The algorithm is based on evaluation at a single large integer value (for each variable), integer GCD computation, and a single-point interpolation scheme. Timing comparisons show that this algorithm is very efficient for most univariate problems and it is also the algorithm of choice for many problems in up to four variables.
