 2006-04-12, 21:41 #1 EbonezerCabbage   7·1,013 Posts ECM question from a novice Simply looking at the topics in this thread have made nervous about even asking this here, as i feel like i'm wasting your time, but here goes. I'm writing a paper on factorization methods for large numbers and have hit a rather difficult snag. I was wondering if anyone out there could explain in layman terms how the elliptical curve method for factoring really works. How is it different from Pollard's "p-1" method. I am really looking for a dumbed down version here. It would really help me understand whats going on in my paper.
