here's what I got from reading it:

N=a^2-b^2 ~ s^2

so say y is the lower factor in a 2 best factor setup y+2n is the other to go along with it y*(y+2n) = y^2+2ny~s^2 this leads to s^2-y^2 ~ 2ny since both y^2 and 2ny have a common factor y, so do ~s^2 and y^2 namely y so in closing the lowest of the 2 has a multiple close to the sqrt of the N to be factored. of course how close depends on the amount of rounding I think.

edit: ~ is for approximately.
