My Integer Factorization Study: A Mathematical Report
Advertisements I have begun writing a mathematical report, in my Google Docs shareable files, summarizing the basic principles I am examining and the work I have done, with discoveries I have made, so far. The report is here. (clickable link)

My Integer Factorization Study: This Isn’t Finished.
Advertisements After my Tiny Eureka yesterday led to nothing new in the way of mathematical discoveries – led, in fact, to a tautology, a sort of uninformative a=a result – I took a breather. I had already scheduled myself a break after “Tiny Eureka,” and it felt strange to pull away from the study on […]

My Integer Factorization Study: May 7 2022 4:29pm Eastern Update
Advertisements This morning’s Tiny Eureka demonstrates itself right now to be a trivial finding, and therefore unlikely to lead me to a Big Eureka.

My Integer Factorization Study: Tiny Eureka! (or Should I Say “Woof!”?)
Advertisements I am finally barking up the correct tree, so to speak, and I have found the little squirrel I sought. From the beginning, with gusto! (By the way, the relationship I am about to describe took a while to hammer out on paper, and a great deal longer to get right in Perl code.) […]

My Integer Factorization Study: Discouraged, but Then Renewed in Hope
Advertisements UPDATE: the sometimes triangular tables of values I have been building over the last several days have borne fruit, so to speak. I do not know where this will lead me, or how much easier it will make the task of integer factorization, but I have found a relationship between the product m of […]

My Integer Factorization Study: Closer, but No Cigar (Squirrel?) Yet
Advertisements Last night and this morning, I began looking at the behavior of the remainder r = s2 – m, where m is the product of distinct primes p and q, p < q, and s is the smallest integer greater than the square root of m. I began to build a kind of triangular […]

My Mathematical/Number Study: What Got Me Up Early This Morning
Advertisements Consider the positive integer m which is the product of distinct primes p and q. Consider s, the smallest integer greater than the square root of m, and the difference r = s^2 – m. p will be less than s, and q will be greater than s. Thus p = s – c1 […]

My Number Study: A Short Perl Script for Integer Factorization
Advertisements This is no great revelation post, merely a progress report. See the script below, which is an automation of the procedure I am using and analyzing so far. It’s not nearly the quickest – I expect extreme slowness for anything remotely near the RSA challenge number! – but it’s a starting point which I […]
