Compound Means and Fast Computation of Radicals
Abstract: In last decades, several algorithms were developed for fast evaluation of some elementary functions with very large arguments, for example for multiplication of million-digit integers. The present paper introduces a new fast iterative method for computing values  with high accuracy, for fixed  and . The method is based on compound means and Padé approximations.
