# Is differential calculus related to RSA?

I'm writing a high school math paper on RSA and I'm wondering if it's possible to relate calculus to RSA. Is calculus used for any part of RSA? It can be for proving equations/theorems, for generating keys, for cracking RSA, etc.

Every part of math is related to any other if you try hard enough. –  Thomas Jan 5 at 6:38
@Ricky - Yes: Analytic Number Theory. To O.P.: Not in any meaningful way without what in America is graduate level mathematics. –  figlesquidge Jan 5 at 11:12
I read a bunch of Wikipedia articles about Analytic Number Theory, isn't it about the distribution of prime numbers? Can you tell me what is the graduate level mathematics? I can try understanding it. –  Linksku Jan 6 at 22:44
