Prime numbers beckon to the beginner, the basic notion of primality being accessible to a child. Yet, some of the simplest questions about primes have stumped humankind for millennia. In this book, the authors concentrate on the computational aspects of prime numbers, such as recognizing primes and discovering the fundamental prime factors of a given number. Over 100 explicit algorithms cast in detailed pseudocode are included in the book. Applications and theoretical digressions serve to…

Prime numbers are rather old objects in mathematics, however, they did not loose their fascination and importance. Invented by the ancient Greek in an alogy to theindivisible atoms in physics, primes
Since the days of Euclid and Eratosthenes, mathematicians have taken a keen interest in finding the nontrivial factors of integers, as well as in finding prime numbers, which have no such factors.
The theory of numbers is primarily concerned with the properties of the natural numbers 1,2,3,. . . . The fundamental theorem of arithmetic states that each natural number > 1 can be expressed

This paper can be used for educational purposes, allowing students to become acquainted with the Mathematics and Algorithmics regarding the search of primes, as well as with the notion and use of patterns.
The analysis of many number theoretic algorithms turns on the role played by integers which have only small prime factors; such integers are known as “smooth numbers”. To be able to determine which
Three major primality proving algorithms are surveyed, which rely on disparate concepts in mathematics: Jacobi sums, elliptic curves, and exponentiation in a polynomial ring.
It is shown that for all constants C ∈ R, the number of modular multiplications necessary to obtain this certificate is greater than Clog p for a set of primes p with relative asymptotic density 1.

Abstract In 1987, Gordon gave an integer primality condition similar to the familiar test based on Fermat’s little theorem, but based instead on the arithmetic of elliptic curves with complex

Primes are used pervasively throughout modern society, and many deterministic algorithms don’t have proven upper bounds on their run time complexities, relying on heuristics.
