Quad Sieve  Finding BSmooth Bound
Hi. I'm attempting to implement the quadratic sieve, in part just to improve my own understanding of it. I don't have that strong of a mathematical background either. I understand the basic concept of what's going on, can do the linear algebra steps, but there's one part that many papers seem to either not explain at all or explain with great big fancy mathematical equations that leave me scratching my head. How do choose the value that defines a BSmooth number? What is the upper bound there?
Thank you!
