An Update on Factorization at Sandia National Laboratories
Subsequences with large divisors (Special q’s).
Multipliers to improve quadratic properties.
Increased size of prime base using segmented Gaussian Elimination.
Optimization of the code with respect to Cray hardware. Using this code in its various stages of development the 10 most wanted numbers from the Cunningham Project have been factored. Details will be published elsewhere.
