problem6. Factoring is the problem of computing, on input a positive integer n, a factorization of n in terms of integer powers of prime numbers. This problem can be "easy” (i.e., there exists a polynomial-time algorithm that solves it) or "(conjectured to be) hard” (i.e., there seems to be no polynomial-time algorithm that solves it) depending on the (sub)set of integers from which n is chosen. De?ne the trial division algorithm D to solve the factoring problem and study its running time t_D(n).

Then consider the exhaustive search algorithm to search for the discrete logarithm of y in base g for a cyclic group G of order m. Given this algorithm and its running time t(m,n), we want to infer considerations on computing discrete logarithm in G being easy or conjectured to be hard depending on the choices of m as a function of the length n of the group elements. Let m_easy(n) be a value for m such that computing discrete logarithms in G is easy and m_hard(n) be a value for m such that computing discrete logarithms in G may be conjectured to be hard.
