Do you think this would be efficient? It works. Here's a multiplication table and some factorizations: Code:  1 i j k 1 1 i j k i i -1 k -j j j -k -1 i k k j -i -1 911=(30+3i+j+k)*(30-3i-j-k) 569=(5+12i+12j+16k)*(5-12i-12j-16k) Here's how I did it: 569=5^2+12^2+12^2+16^2=13^2+20^2 911=30^2+3^2+1^2+1^2 There is more than one way to factor these numbers: (30+3i+3j+3k)*(30-3i-3j-3k)=911=(30-3i+3j+3k)*(30+3i-3j-3k) Gaussian primes are the sum of 4 squares (with the exception of 3 which is 1^2+1^2+1^2), so they have 24 different quarternion factorizations each: p=(a±bi±cj±dk)*(a±bi±cj±dk) where the signs are opposite (as in the example with 911). What do you think?   2012-04-09, 11:46   #2

You are aware that the Quaternions (e.g. a Quaternion ring) are not commutative????

Get back to use after you get a degree in mathematics. Then your posts
may start to make sense. You bandy about words such as "efficient"
with no clue what the words mean.   2012-04-09, 14:16   #3

100111010012 Posts Given away the values for 3b (mod N), 3a (mod N), b > a
we do not know the values for b, a directly at all

Can we calculate the value for 3b mod a mod N efficiently?

If 3^a = 6 mod 101 and 3^b = 91 mod 101, is 3^(b mod a) 32 or 39 mod 101? It depends on what a and b are. So you can't compute this at all, let alone efficiently.   2012-04-10, 04:20   #5

And then reverse the direction starting away right directly from the value for the 3^0 = 1 (mod N), 3^GCD(Phi(N), N) mod N, to get the intermediate exponents, and then ultimately the value for Phi(N)
If instead of 3, some other generator element, then... ?
Oops! But that we do not know beforehand itself if whether an element is a generator, on over the ring Zn* at all
But that it is being possible to randomly choose a base, there are being 50% chances, turns, for it to be the primitive root...

3b-a mod N = (3b)(3a)-1 mod N
But that how do we know that how many times we have to carry out the above mentioned subtraction process before itself
