Hi! We proudly present you our project of python - factorizing high numbers.

Python allows to calculate with very large numbers. We have built a list of squares in one file

and have written a programm to subtract differences of the number to factorize and squares, to compare these differences to the listed squares.

THink of the sweet little number 15. As you all know, you can divide 15 into 1 * 15 or into 3 * 5.

Now we have a new secret, that is a secret of every number - for some less, for others more.

15 is the difference between the square of 8 and the square fo 7: 8^2 - 7^2 = 15

And 8 plus 7 = 15

This is a secret of every number. Look: 8+7 = 15 and 8-7 = 1. Hence the difference between 8^2 and 7^2 leads to 15*1.

But if a number has more than 1 and itself as factors, we are able to find more pairs of squares: For 15 = 5 * 3 these are 4^2 and 1^2. These funny pair leads to 16-1 = 15 or in factors: 4-1 = 3 and 4 + 1 = 5 !

This special case is especially special, as 3*5 is a pair of twin-primes - numbers that are odd

and neighbours in the row of odds.

Hence, to find factors, look at the next number above (16 for 15), if it is a square, and subtract the number itself: 16-15.

If this is a one, the result is a twin-pair of numbers as factors.

But as this is a very special case, we need a strategy to find the factor-pairs. This is what we are looking for.
