Since taking logarithms of large numbers is very slow, here's a faster way. First transform `h`

to a SageMath integer, then evaluate the parts of the logarithm individually:

```
hInt = ZZ(h)
exp = hInt.ndigits() - 1
char = int( hInt / 10^exp )
rem = hInt - char * 10^exp
print "h is {} x 10^{} + {}".format( char, exp, rem )
```

Here's a live example with just the calculation of `P0`

and `h`
