# Sieve of Eratosthenes
Implementation of sieve of eratosthenes algorithm to calculate all the prime numbers until number given used as limit, using tail recursive optimization and async functions.
How it works is:
* Create a list of numbers between two and the input parameter like this `[2..input]`
* Get the square root to chunk the list generated
* Calculate all the primes of the first list
* Remove al composite numbers of the remaining lists
* Return all the prime numbers not filtered by the prime numbers and the firs list of prime numbers
## Installation
If [available in Hex](https://hex.pm/docs/publish), the package can be installed
by adding `prime_opt` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:
```elixir
def deps do
[
{:sieve_of_eratosthenes, "~> 0.1.0"}
]
end
```
## Usage
For calculate all the primes with a limit given you can call the module `SieveOfEratosthenes.calculate_primes/1` like this.
```elixir
iex> SieveOfEratosthenes.calculate_primes(1_000)
[2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73,
79, 83, 89, 97, 101, 103, 107, 109, 113, 127, 131, 137, 139, 149, 151, 157,
163, 167, 173, 179, 181, 191, 193, 197, 199, 211, 223, 227, 229, ...]
```
## Benchmark
The benchmark was generated with Benchee shown the following results:
| quantity | time elapsed |
|--- | --- |
| One thousand | 0.20 ms |
| Ten thousand | 1.48 ms |
| One hundred thousand | 12.64 ms |
| One million | 148.52 ms |
| Ten million | 2261.63 ms |
