Roger Frye [1]

Roger E. Frye,
an American mathematician, data scientist and technical analyst. In the late 80s and early 90s, while affiliated with Thinking Machines, he used massive parallelism to solve several seemingly impossible problems in discrete mathematics. He found the smallest counter-example to Euler’s generalization of Fermat’s Last Theorem [2], wrote the code for the final stage of factoring a 513 bit integer, and demonstrated a 150x speedup over Cray on an NSA benchmark [3].


Roger E. Frye contributed to the StarTech project, as mentioned by Bradley Kuszmaul in his thesis acknowledgments [4]:

Mark Bromley, Roger Frye, and Kurt Thearling provided important design and programming help in getting StarTech running on the CM-5. Roger almost singlehandedly built the interface between the HiTech code and the parallel computer ...
