How can I calculate large factorials in java within short time? Right now I am using BigInteger and calculate factorial of a huge number like 30000. But it takes almost a minute. I want to speed up this process. I want to calculate factorials of all numbers less than 2^31 within a short time. Each number should not take more than 0.05 secs. Can someone help?
