Default Fermat's Theorem

We all know fermat's theorem that states: if p is a prime and (p,a)=1 then p divides a^(p-1)-1. I noticed that p divides also: a^k(p-1)-1. Is this a well known characteristic?

Second question: what about the infinite sums -c, and in particularly when c=1 ? like 1-1+1-1+...

Last question: does anybody know if new progresses were made in defining the necessary conditions for a function to be defined with a Fourier series?
