Improved Standard Continuation

November 8, 2011

Here is our version of the elliptic curve factorization function:

(define ec-factor ; Crandall/Pomerance Algorithm 7.4.4
  (let* ((b1-saved 0) (b2-saved 0) (ps '()) (as '()) (ds '()) (d 210)
         (sv (make-vector (+ d 1) #f)) (bv (make-vector (+ d 1) #f)))
    (lambda (n b1 b2 s)
      (when (not (and (= b1 b1-saved) (= b2 b2-saved)))
        (set! b1-saved b1) (set! b2-saved b2) (set! ps (primes b2))
        (set! as (let loop ((ps ps) (as (list)))
                   (let ((a (ilog (car ps) b1)))
                     (if (= a 1) (append (reverse as) (cycle 1))
                       (loop (cdr ps) (cons a as))))))
        (set! ds (cons 0 (map (lambda (x) (/ x 2))
                   (map - (cdr ps) (reverse (cdr (reverse ps))))))))
      (let-values (((an ad q) (curve12 n s)))
        (let stage1 ((ps ps) (as as) (ds ds) (q q))
          (if (< (car ps) b1)
              (stage1 (cdr ps) (cdr as) (cdr ds)
                      (multiply (expt (car ps) (car as)) q an ad n))
              (let ((g (gcd (cdr q) n))) (if (< 1 g n) (list 1 g)
                (let* ((v (- b1 1)) (r (multiply v q an ad n))
                       (t (multiply (- b1 1 d d) q an ad n))
                       (alpha (modulo (* (car r) (cdr r)) n)))
                  (vector-set! sv 1 (double q an ad n))
                  (vector-set! sv 2 (double (vector-ref sv 1) an ad n))
                  (do ((i 3 (+ i 1))) ((< d i))
                    (vector-set! sv i
                      (add (vector-ref sv (- i 1))
                           (vector-ref sv 1)
                           (vector-ref sv (- i 2)) n)))
                  (do ((i 1 (+ i 1))) ((< d i))
                    (vector-set! bv i
                      (modulo (* (car (vector-ref sv i))
                                 (cdr (vector-ref sv i))) n)))
                  (let stage2 ((v v) (ps ps) (ds ds) (r r) (t t) (g 1))
                    (if (null? ps) (let ((g (gcd g n))) (if (< 1 g n) (list 2 g) #f))
                      (let ((v2d (+ v d d)) (alpha (modulo (* (car r) (cdr r)) n)))
                        (let loop ((ps ps) (ds ds) (g g))
                          (if (and (pair? ps) (< (car ps) v2d))
                              (loop (cdr ps) (cdr ds) (modulo (* g (+ (*
                                    (- (car r) (car (vector-ref sv (car ds))))
                                    (+ (cdr r) (cdr (vector-ref sv (car ds)))))
                                    (- alpha) (vector-ref bv (car ds)))) n))
                              (let* ((old-r r) (r (add r (vector-ref sv d) t n)))
                              (let ((g (gcd g n))) (if (< 1 g n) (list 2 g)
                                  (stage2 v2d ps ds r old-r g))))))))))))))))))

The only change we made was to replace variable d with i and variable r with v; since some implementations of Scheme don’t recognize differences in case, we couldn’t retain the original variable names. We reused the elliptic arithmetic functions add, double and multiply from the previous exercises.

Our ec-factor function is a drop-in replacement for the earlier factors function. An updated version of the function, with improved Pollard rho (the Brent variation) and Pollard p−1 (the two-stage improved standard continuation) functions, is shown on the next page. In this form, complicated factorizations are ten to fifty times faster than the old function.

The complete factors function is shown on the next page and at Two sample factorizations are shown below:
