## Graphical Integer Factorization Technique.

**Prime numbers are the building blocks of arithmetic.** The reason is because every integer greater than 1 is either a prime or a finite product of prime numbers and such product is unique. Thus, being able to decompose or factor an integer is of fundamental importance to number theory. **Anyhow, it seems that efficient integer factorization is a truly difficult task. **Several methods (ECM, QS and NFS) are in use today but they all fail to scale-up to numbers such as RSA-1024 bits and beyond. 3D integer factorization is an alternative since it attempts to generate a multiple of any prime factor and uses a search experiment to find such prime number. Unfortunately, this new scheme requires further research.

In the present work, **GIFT is the natural aftermath in our line of reasoning because it creates a bridge between number theory and graph theory [3]. In this new approach, every integer is a finite set of decimal digits and such set corresponds to a graph.** We hope that such link reveals the intrinsic relationship that may exist between the digits of an integer and its prime factors.
