• ## Integer Factorization: The Fly in the Formulaic Ointment

Advertisements What you see above is a graph whose shape and jagged characteristics are similar to those of graphs I have been examining for two years, though they have shown up in different stages in my study and growing understanding of the problem of fast integer factorization. Most recently, my quickfact.pl Perl script and the…

• ## NEW! – Integer Factorization – Perl Script quickfact.pl

Advertisements Here is a new script for integer factorization that, though probably not faster than the current best algorithms, has on its side compactness, which does help with speed. I have not written it for, or tested it on, arbitrary-precision discrete semiprimes, but expect the speeds to be comparable, and hope they might even be…

• ## Integer Factorization: Brief Remainder Line Observation

Advertisements The slope and y-intercept of the Remainder Line for an odd integer m=c2-r with Ceiling Square c2 and Remainder r on the Zone Grid increase linearly over all values of m having the same r, according to their c value. This is something I’ve already programmed in to jumpfactor.pl: It calculates the Remainder Line…

• ## Integer Factorization and the Zone Grid: Constructing and Using Remainder Lines

Advertisements First of all, I want to write down on my blog some of the nitty gritty, in a fashion I hope will be clear, of how I construct and use the Zone Grid I have been using in my calculations and explorations, and my discovery of how to plot thereon the Remainder Line corresponding…

• ## Integer Factorization: Update for 25 September 2023

Advertisements An incidental quirk i noticed in jumpfactor.pl outputs led me to scurry to program a jumpfact2.pl based thereon, but which produced a speed-up in only one out of the fifty test numbers (10 to 12 digits) of my discrete semiprime data suite. What that exciting/disappointing work caused me to pause has resumed: a more…

• ## Integer Factorization Update 9/21/2023: The Zone Grid, The Trivial Jump, Etc.

Advertisements It’s been a week of inundation by ideas. I’ve battled headaches and all of the struggles of balancing potentially good mathematical revelations with all of life’s necessary other concerns. I am in a play – It’s a small role, but I am also the Musical Director for some gospel song interludes the director wants…

• ## Integer Factorization: The Least Ceiling Square LCS(r)

Advertisements Let m be an odd positive integer. Let c be the least positive integer for which c2 is greater than m, which is odd if (m+1)/2 is odd and even otherwise. c thus defined is the Ceiling Root of m, c2 is m’s Ceiling Square, and the difference between m’s Ceiling Square and m…

• ## Integer Factorization: A Ceiling Square Spread and a Math QR Code!

Advertisements I am once again trudging into the deep forest of how prime numbers, discrete semiprimes, and other composite numbers distribute themselves among the positive odd integers, looking for patterns. The illustrations below are from the beginning steps, taken yesterday and today, of this stage of my math study. The table I’ve built using Apple…

• ## Integer Factorization: A Relationship on the Zone Grid

Advertisements ADVICE: Go back a post or three in my blog from this one to find a link to the construction method referenced in the terms below that are unique to my factorization work. When one plots the Characteristic Polynomial for an odd positive integer m=c2-r as a straight line connecting the integer points of…

• ## Integer Factorization: Assessing Recent Revelations

Advertisements Once again, the findings, though pretty, are seemingly of little moment, at least in terms of discovering something new. But wait. Breathe. Think. Here is what I know now, in the form it has most recently taken: Let m be an odd positive integer, and c2 be the smallest perfect square greater than m…
