Integer Factorization: Post-algorithmic-adjustment Thoughts


It is plain to me that, after making the straightforward modifications to make sure that the characterization algorithm deals with adjusted ceiling squares of the correct “polarity” (according to m being congruent to 1 or -1 modulo 4), I need to look again at how I am choosing nice, smooth, linearly increasing ranges. These values I’m seeing are all over the place, and the noise factor, which I was trying to eliminate, is not edifying or informative at all.

Fear not, folks. It’s not back to the drawing board. I haven’t actually left the drawing board. What it is, equally metaphorically, is sleeves-rolling-up time. Oh, heck, it’s football season, so those of you who fancy that sport can come up with a better metter for.
