COMMENTS

The accelerated continued fraction (ACF) of a positive rational number x/y, where GCD(x,y) = 1, is defined by the algorithm below.  The number of terms in ACF(x/y) is <= the number of terms in the classical continued fraction CF(x/y).

Step 1.  Put w = Mod[x,y].  If w=0, put c(0) = x/y and Stop.

If 0 < w <= y/2, put c(0) = floor(x/y), u->y, v->w, f->1, go to step 2;

if w>y/2, put c(0) = 1 + floor(x/y), u->y, v->y - w, f->-1, go to step 2.

For i>=2, Step i is in 5 cases, as follows:

Case 0.1:  f = 1 and w = 0.  Put w = Mod[x,y] and c(i) = u/v and Stop.

Case 0.2:  f = -1 and w = 0.  Put w = Mod[x,y] and c(i) = -u/v and Stop.

Case 1:  f = 1 and w <= v/2.  Put w = Mod[x,y] and c(i) = floor(u/v), u->v, v->w, f->1, go to step i+1.

Case 2:  f = 1 and w > v/2.  Put w = Mod[x,y] and c(i) = 1 + floor(u/v), u->y, v->v - w, f->-1, go to step i+1.

Case 3:  f = -1 and w <= v/2.  Put w = Mod[x,y] and c(i) = -floor(u/v), u->v, v->w, f->-1, go to step i+1.

Case 4:  f = -1 and w > v/2.  Put w = Mod[x,y] and c(i) = -1 - floor(u/v), u->y, v->v - w, f->-f, go to step i+1.
