PRIMES is in P

  title={PRIMES is in P},
  author={Manindra Agrawal and Neeraj Kayal and Nitin Saxena},
We present a deterministic polynomial-time algorithm that determines whether an input number n is prime or composite. “The problem of distinguishing prime numbers from composite numbers and of resolving the latter into their prime factors is known to be one of the most important and useful in arithmetic. It has engaged the industry and wisdom of ancient and modern geometers to such an extent that it would be superfluous to discuss the problem at length... Further, the dignity of the science… CONTINUE READING
