Re: Writing prime factor decomposision in conventional form


Hello Wolfgang

I found the folllowing code at
http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PrimeFactorization.html

SetAttributes[FactorForm, Listable];

FactorForm[n_?NumberQ, opts___] := Times @@ (HoldForm[Power[##]] & @@@
\
FactorInteger[n, opts])

Seems to do what you want.
Regards,
Mike
