Why integer factorization is in P/FP?
http://www.optimizationonline.org/D...12/08/3591.pdf
https://www.researchgate.net/post/Ca...olynomial_time I have some reasons to verify it additionally. 1) This proof is so elementary, for that it is highly unlikely to be true. 2) Maybe it contains one or more fatal mistakes. 3) There is no known algorithms to factorize number that lie in P.

The second link is merely baseless speculation (no, AKS can't do that). If you need another reason to doubt the first, it claims a proof of P = NP along the way.

What I already have said. There can not be elementary proof of P = NP. If it was true, why scientists searched for proofs since 1970s and could not find?

I would also imagine that, if the 2000 paper actually led directly to factorization in polynomial time as indicated, somebody would have noticed right away. I also point out that the claimant doesn't actually give an algorithm for solving the integer programming problem in polynomial time. He merely asserts that it can be done, and then says "do it." If I had a polynomial time factorization method, I would give examples applying it to "challenge" and "most wanted" factorizations. Last fiddled with by Dr Sardonicus on 20190123 at 15:22
