The Factoring Page!

Hey, It's my factoring page! I haven't updated it in many years now, but people still seem to visit it.

How do those programs do it? How do they factor numbers? Here you can learn. Here, you can find explinations, source code, links, and even a little history about your favorite factoring algorithm. Factoring has recently become popular because of new encryption algorithms (PGP, RSA and their ofsprings...)

Go ahead and mail me if you have any suggestions, code improvements, or pointers to any other interesting factorization sites. Ok, let's get to the STUFF . . .
