Abstract: An implementation is described of the continued fraction factoring algorithm on the DAP parallel processor located in Queen Mary College in London. The DAP has 4096 parallel processors each containing 16K bits of memory and the suggested implementation incorporates the early abort strategy and the large prime variation.
