A Classical Mechanism for Shor's Algorithm Implementations

  •  David L. Selke    


Loops that enforce a correct output and that restart with a changed parameter may emulate a brute force search, even against the design intent. A Python program is presented analogous to Shor's Algorithm but with random number generation replacing the math. It factors integers. Shor's Algorithm devices may operate similarly to the Python program, not in being random, but in being classical.
