To see that Step (4) can be done in quadratic time, first observe that the number of nonzero partials in pgd([N.sup.1]) and pdg([N.sup.2]) is linear in the maximum genus of [N.sup.1] and [N.sup.2], since partials can be nonzero only for genera with genus less than or equal to maximum genus and for every genus in this range there is only a constant number of different types of partials.
