comment What are the most known arbitrary precision arithmetic implementation approaches?
The book "Java Number Crunchers" might be of interest to you. The translation from Java to .NET should be easy.

comment Why are shortcuts like x += y considered good practice?
I would expect that any sane compiler with any optimizations enabled, would unify all these ways to to use the "fastet" on the particular platform.

comment License on papers published at universities?
I would disagree with the first paragraph. Most patented techniques published in academic papers are not mentioned in it. I personally think it would be great it authors would do that because patents are of course related work. On the other hand, the essence from every paper e.g. IBM publishes is patented. (Personal communication, I don't work for them or have I).
