The BigInteger class represents an arbitrary-precision integer value. You should use this class if a long is not big enough for your purposes. The number in a BigInteger is represented by a sign value and a magnitude, which is an arbitrarily large array of bytes. A BigInteger cannot overflow.
Most of the methods in BigInteger perform mathematical operations or make comparisons with other BigInteger objects. BigInteger also defines some methods for handling modular arithmetic and determining primality that are needed for cryptographic purposes.

The initial value.
If the array does not contain any bytes.
This constructor creates a BigInteger with the given initial value. The value is expressed as a two's complement signed integer, with the most significant byte in the first position (val[0]) of the array (big-endian). The most significant bit of the most significant byte is the sign bit.
public BigInteger(int signum, byte[] magnitude) throws NumberFormatException
The sign of the value: -1 indicates negative, 0 indicates zero, and 1 indicates positive.
The initial magnitude of the value.
If signum is invalid or if signum is 0 but magnitude is not 0.
This constructor creates a BigInteger with the given initial value and sign. The magnitude is expressed as a big-endian byte array.
