At this stage, we will introduce the four sets of moduli we recommend for speeding up Barrett-based reduction, and follow up with a short discussion of the density function of each of these sets, in lieu of a lengthier treatment and illustration of the mathematics behind the choice of these sets, in view of brevity due to the space restrictions.
