Unformatted text preview: of this algorithm is called the double large prime variation of the multiple polynomial quadratic sieve. Elliptic curve method (ECM) [957,1112,1113]. This method has been used to find 43-digit factors, but nothing larger. Pollard’s Monte Carlo algorithm [1254,248]. (This algorithm also appears in volume 2, page 370 of Knuth [863].) Continued fraction algorithm. See [1123,1252,863]. This algorithm isn’t even in the running. Trial division. This is the oldest factoring algorithm and consists of testing every prime number less than or equal to the square root of the candidate number.

Previous Table of Contents Next ----------- See [251] for a good introduction to these different factoring algorithms, except for the NFS. The best discussion of the NFS is [953]. Other, older references are [505, 1602, 1258]. Information on parallel factoring can be found in [250]. If n is the number being factored, the fastest QS variants have a heuristic asymptotic run time of: e(1+ 0(1))(ln (n))(1/2)(ln (ln (n)))(1/2) The NFS is much faster, with a heuristic asymptotic time estimate of: e(1.923+ 0(1))(ln (n))(1/3)(ln (ln (n)))(2/3) In 1970, the big news was the factoring of a 41-digit hard number [1123]. (A “hard” number is one that does not have any small factors and is not of a special form that allows it to be factored more easily.) Ten years later, factoring hard numbers twice tha...

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
