Description

Many current encryption schemes rely on the difficulty of factoring large numbers. Shor's Algorithm is a quantum factorization method. This presentation will motivate the ideas and methods behind Shor's Algorithm, as well as the mathematical theory behind using quantum computing to practically use Shor's Algorithm.
