BigInteger.ModPow Method (BigInteger, BigInteger, BigInteger)

 

Performs modulus division on a number raised to the power of another number.

Namespace:   System.Numerics
Assembly:  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

public static BigInteger ModPow(
	BigInteger value,
	BigInteger exponent,
	BigInteger modulus
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The number to raise to the exponent power.

exponent
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The exponent to raise value by.

modulus
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The number by which to divide value raised to the exponent power.

Return Value

Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The remainder after dividing valueexponent by modulus.

Exception Condition
DivideByZeroException

modulus is zero.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

exponent is negative.

The ModPow method evaluates the following expression:

(baseValue ^ exponent) Mod modulus

To perform exponentiation on BigInteger values without modulus division, use the Pow method.

The following example provides a simple illustration of calling the ModPow method.

using System;
using System.Numerics;

public class Class1
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      BigInteger number = 10;
      int exponent = 3;
      BigInteger modulus = 30;
      Console.WriteLine("({0}^{1}) Mod {2} = {3}", 
                        number, exponent, modulus, 
                        BigInteger.ModPow(number, exponent, modulus));    
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//      (10^3) Mod 30 = 10
