Title Primes
Description These four programs utilizes the fact that if you have two positive numbers A and B, and sqrt(B^2 - A) is a positive integer, then B - sqrt(B^2 - A) and B + sqrt(B^2 - A) are factors in A. If A has two factors, ( which may or may not be prime numbers ), B is ( F2 - F1)/2 + F1, where F1 is the smallest factor. This is known as Fermat’s factorization method. So B is always bigger than or equal to sqrt A and smaller than or equal to F2. Therefore this method is extremely fast when the two factors are of similar size. However it is just as slow a way, when there is a big difference in size, compared to an ordinary program, and so these programs also feature very fast conventional programs, which counts up much faster than the ordinary one. Enclosed is a link to a Wikipedia article on the subject.
