Abstract—In accordance with the traits of parallel computing, the paper proposes a parallel algorithm to factorize the Fermat numbers through parallelization of a sequential algorithm. The kernel work to parallelize a sequential algorithm is presented by subdividing the computing interval into subintervals that are assigned to the parallel processes to perform the parallel computing. Maple experiments show that the parallelization increases the computational efficiency of factoring the Fermat numbers, especially to the Fermat number with big divisors.

Index Terms—Integer factorization, fermat number, parallel computing, algorithm.
