Thanks Milton. I've downloaded them and I'll take a look.

As a pedant, I must warn you that your including sub-exponential but

superpolynomial algorithms under a common header "exponential" is

guaranteed to bring down criticism on your head. Purely to avoid

needless hatemail, I suggest that you re-phrase those portions of your

slide set. If you mean superpolynomial you should say so, and not claim

things to be exponential which are *not* exponential in a mathematical

sense.

Paul- Hi Milton,

Can you export it to HTML format -- this ppt format is so stupid that I

couldn't open it.

Thanks,

> - Well, Milton, I'm certainly disappointed. I thought you might have

something this time, but when I look at your spreadsheets and your

powerpoint slides, I see nothing of substance.

It looks like you have painstakingly filled in thousands of cells in

many spreadsheets that inexorably lead you to an answer that you knew

ahead of time. Nowhere is it explained how these numbers are generated.

For instance, here are a couple of columns from your RSA-100 sheet,

(http://www.ecs.fullerton.edu/~mbrown/100.xls), specifically Columns D

and E, rows 9 through 20.

30 17

31 30

32 85

33 103

34 69

35 29

36 63

37 133

38 5.7

39 84

40 2.4

41 88

Column D was derived earlier to be the first digit of one (or both) of

the factors of RSA-100. What is Column E? You have highlighted E-16,

E-17 and E-19 presumably because they are a maximum and the two minima

and indeed one factor starts with 37 and the other with 40. But how was

column E generated? There are no formulas in the entire spreadsheet.

Without this information, what are we to make of it?

Now, you may be withholding this information because your method isn't

perfected yet and you don't want someone else stealing your idea. Fine.

If you would demonstrate that your method can work on numbers that you

don't know the answer to already, then I would think you really had

something, but these spreadsheets don't demonstrate anything of

substance.

On the other hand, if you are just trying to jerk our collective chain,

my hat is off to you! You have managed to string us along masterfully.

Tom Hadley

P.S. Don't claim that the method is explained in your Powerpoint slides.

Here is the only slide that mentions any detail about the method:

> Residual Factorization Method

It leaves some information missing, like where do you start with X? and

>

> Integer to be factored N

> Integer X, next prime up X'

> Integer Y, integer divide N / X', and truncate

> Integer Y' next prime up from Y

> Integer R, the residual is

>

> R = X' * Y' - N

>

> Minimums of R determine the digits of the factors of N

how do the minimums of R determine the digits of the factors of N?
