Modern asymmetric encryption builds upon the assumption that it is practically impossible to find the prime factors of very large numbers.

Accordingly, the outcry was great when Peter Shor presented his algorithm that allows a quantum computer to factorize a large number efficiently. Of course, we all want to understand how this algorithm works…
