modified Euler's generalisation of Fermat's theorem
When the base is a rational integer Euler's generalisation holds. When the base is a Gaussian integer the tentative rule is as follows:
For every prime factor (of the composite number) with shape 4m+1 use Euler's totient.For every prime factor with shape 4m+3 use (p^2-1).Reduce product of above product by a factor of 2 for every prime of shape 4m+1 and by a factor of 4 for every prime prime of shape 4m+3. Needless to say exponent and base should be coprime. |

Recall that we define the norm of a Gaussian integer \(w=a+bi\), written \(N(w)\), by \(N(w)=a^2+b^2\).
The essence of the problem here is to derive the formula for the number of units in the ring of Gaussian integers modulo \(w\). A good way to start is to show that, as long as \(w\neq 0\), this ring contains precisely \(N(w)\) distinct elements. |
