The overall quantity box Sieve (GNFS) is the quickest recognized technique for factoring "large" integers, the place huge is mostly taken to intend over one hundred ten digits. This makes it the easiest set of rules for trying to unscramble keys within the RSA [2, bankruptcy four] public-key cryptography method, some of the most typical equipment for transmitting and receiving mystery info. in reality, GNFS was once used lately to issue a 130-digit "challenge" quantity released via RSA, the most important variety of cryptographic value ever factored.

Example text

Let F q be a finite field with q = pd elements where p is an odd, prime integer. If η ∈ F ∗q is a quadratic non-residue in F ∗q then η s has order 2r . In particular, the Sylow 2-subgroup S2r of F ∗q is given by S2r = {1, ns , n2s , n3s , . . , n(2 r −1)s }. Proof. 1 since η is assumed to be a quadratic non-residue in F ∗q . Then −1 = η (q−1) 2 =η 2r s 2 = η2 r−1 s = (η s )2 r−1 so that (η s )2 = 1 and therefore k must divide 2r . Now (η s )2 = 1 for 0 ≤ m < r − 1 since otherwise r m (η s )2 m+1 = (η s )2 m+2 = · · · (η s )2 r−1 =1 and it is known that (η s )2 = −1.

4. Next, a sequence of subspaces Wi analogous to the wi vectors in ordinary Lanczos is produced such that there is no vector wi ∈ Wi with wi , T (wj ) = 0 for all wj ∈ Wj where i = j. This latter condition alleviates the difficulty with wi , T (wj ) = 0 failing. 5. 2) such that AX = AY . In this case A(X − Y ) = 0 and linear combinations of the columns of X − Y may then be computed which produce solutions to B · x = 0. In this block method, all sets and subspaces of vectors are taken to have at most N vectors, where N is the word size of the computer, typically 32 or 64 bits.

In linear algebra circles this is known as the T -cyclic subspace generated by y, while in the realm of numerical analysis it is called the Krylov subspace generated by y. The latter term will be used in this exposition. Matthew E. Briggs Chapter 4. Filling in the Details 33 Now if a basis W = {w0, w1 , . . 1. In this case the vector x produced by the representation will not be equal to y but will rather have T (x) = y. 2. If W = {w0 , w1, . . 2) w0 , T (w0) w1 , T (w1) wm−1 , T (wm−1 ) satisfies T (x) = y.
