Siegel’s Theorem] Suppose a, b, c ∈ Q. 10) provided the cubic polynomial x3 + ax2 + bx + c has no repeated zeros. This theorem will not be proved here – see the notes at the end of the chapter for references where complete proofs may be found. 10) is known as an elliptic curve provided the right-hand side has no repeated zeros. In order for Siegel’s Theorem to hold, some condition about the cubic polynomial is clearly needed because, for example, the equation y 2 = x3 has infinitely many integral solutions.

P − 1. So (b + 1)p ≡ bp + 1 ≡ b + 1 (mod p) by the inductive hypothesis. Thus Fermat’s Little Theorem is proved. 10. Prove that the product of any n successive integers is divisible by n!. A second, and often more useful, version of Fermat’s Little Theorem can be written as follows. Integers a and b are said to be coprime if gcd(a, b) = 1. For all a ∈ Z that are coprime to p, ap−1 ≡ 1 (mod p). 12 as follows: ap − a = a(ap−1 − 1), so when p does not divide a the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic shows that p (ap−1 − 1) if and only if p (ap − a).

This disproved the suggestion of Mersenne. The latter number occupies a special place in the history (and folklore) of mathematics. First, Lucas showed it is not prime but was not able to exhibit a nontrivial factor, which might seem a remarkable idea. In fact, it is something we will encounter again in the computational number theory sections. 3 Listing the Primes 27 this number was the subject of a famous talk given by Prof. F. N. ” On one blackboard, he wrote out the decimal expansion of 267 − 1 and on another he proceeded to compute the product of 193707721 and 761838257287, thereby showing them to be equal.
