Pippenger's Algorithm is a method to compute a sequence of multiple products of multiple inputs. I intend to use this to (drastically, in some cases) speed up the evaluation of multivariate polynomials over arbitrary rings.

Tom Boothby: Implement Pippenger's Algorithm for multivariate polynomial evaluation

Skip to page 13. I've already implemented:
 Direct computation (option 1 in the paper)
 Input partitioning (option 2)
 Most of input clumping (option 3)
I need:
 Output partitioning (option 4)
 Output clumping (excercise left to reader)
Some insight as to why DJB thinks that one can "quickly compute the parameter sequence given p, q. I'll bring a print copy of the 3 cites from Pippenger [3436].
 The general case (not certain this is a reasonable goal for the amount of time we have)
