# “Theorems on factorization and primality testing” Reference request

I would like to ask two questions :

1. Is John M. Pollard's 1974 paper Theorems of factorization and primality testing available online for free ?
2. Independently of that : where can I find the material distilled nicely in textbook form ? Or in a nice expository paper ?

Thank you !

• Pollard has a web site at sites.google.com/site/jmptidcott2 . It includes a list of papers but not free copies. You may try asking him for a copy by email. – lhf May 25 '18 at 1:30

Pollard's 1974 paper seems to be what is described in Wikipedia under Pollard's $p − 1$ algorithm.
