Algorithms for Solving the Discrete Logarithm Problem

Ryan Whaley


Ryan Whaley / Eastern Kentucky University

In mathematics, there are often many procedures to solve or prove the same problem. The discrete logarithm is one of these problems. Two algorithms will be discussed that solve the discrete logarithm problem. In addition to these two algorithms, a modified form of the second algorithm will be provided with results. Finally, Mathematica programs will be presented that run these algorithms.
