Homework Help: Polynomial Factorization

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have to write an algorithm in C++ to determine the (i)reductibility of a polynomial of degree "n"

    2. Relevant equations

    Berlekamp algorithm is preferred.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have Googled for almost an hour now and didn't find anything helpful.

    I could use (in order):
    - A specific example on how Berlekamp fatorization works.
    - Pseudocode

    I'm pretty sure that this is in the wrong category. Try computer science.

    I could also use the mathematical explanation, and I'll make am algorithm from that.
