My name is Tilman Neumann, and I am a computer scientist interested in several subjects
as diverse as computational biology, some physics, machine learning or number theory.
My current focus is the implementation of factoring algorithms in Java.
Despite the defects Java is having for such purposes (slow BigInteger, very slow BigDecimal,
bad pow() implementations) I like to do it in Java because it permits to realize difficult algorithms
in a quite readable way. Besides, the fast refactoring turnaround given by Java and IDEs like
Eclipse allows to test many more ideas than typical C-environments.
Have a look at the new PSIQS 4.0 release. I hope you enjoy it.
