Integer factorization

Circuits for integer factorization

The June 2002 Lenstra-Shamir-Tomlinson-Tromer paper summarizes my grant proposal as presenting a ``new circuit-based approach for ... finding a linear relation in a large but sparse matrix.'' This is a wild mischaracterization of my work. It gives me credit for an algorithm with no particular novelty, while ignoring what is actually new in my proposal.
