With Yuletide cheere and Yuletide sport,
And, when the board was spread,
Now wit ye well 'twas good to see
So fair and brave a companie
With Pelles at the head.

Made mighty cheer and goodly sport.

And to her sleeping boy.

And rushed down to the shore pell-mell.

And raised an awful din and stir.

Through one last orful pong, then up a stair
Into clean air.

In science:

Thus, even though Pell’s equation has an in finite number of solutions, we can in a sense find them all by finding the fundamental solution.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
De fining the ring Z[√d ] ⊂ Q[√d ] as Z[√d ] := {x + y√d : x, y ∈ Z}, we see that solutions of Pell’s equation correspond to those x ∈ Z[√d ] satisfying x ¯x = 1.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
It should not be a surprise that the units of Z[√d ] are closely related to the solutions of Pell’s equation.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
The proof of this fact is essentially the same as the proof that all solutions of Pell’s equation are powers of the fundamental solution.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
If we can find e1 , then it is straightforward to find all the solutions of Pell’s equation.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
Just as in our discussion of the solutions to Pell’s equation, e1 is too large to write down, so instead we compute the regulator of the fundamental unit, R := log e1 .
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
Pell’s equation is closely related to another problem in algebraic number theory called the principal ideal problem.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
Using similar ideas as in the algorithm for solving Pell’s equation, and proceeding along similar lines to Algorithm 3, Hallgren (2007) also gave an efficient quantum algorithm for the principal ideal problem.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
The integer factoring problem reduces to solving Pell’s equation, and Pell’s equation reduces to the principal ideal problem (Buchmann and Williams, 1990); but no reductions in the other direction are known.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
Recall from Section V.B that the quantum algorithm for solving Pell’s equation proceeds by computing the fundamental unit of the unit group of Z[√d ].
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
As in the quantum algorithm for solving Pell’s equation, we can reduce this computation to a period- finding problem.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
There are two main parts to the quantum algorithm for computing the unit group, again paralleling the algorithm for Pell’s equation.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
In Section V.E, we saw that the efficient quantum algorithm for Pell’s equation can be adapted to efficiently decid e whether a given ideal is principal, and if so, to compute (the regulator of) its generator.
Quantum algorithms for algebraic problems
The Pell numbers appear as [26, A000129], where one can find ob jects related to our restricted permutations.

This is done as explained above via the Primitive Divisor Theorem for the second component of the solutions to Pell equations.
