Beame, Cook and Hoover were the first to exhibit a log-depth, polynomial size circuit family for integer division. However, the family was not logspace-uniform. In this paper we describe log-depth, polynomial size, logspace-uniform, i.e., NC1 circuit family for integer division. In particular, by a well-known result this shows that division is in logspace. We also refine the method of the paper to show that division is in dlogtime-uniform NC1.
