suppose p is a prime number of the form p = 24k + b.
For which primes p does Mp (where Mp means modulo multiplication group)
contain
1. the square root of negative 1
2. the square root of 2
3. the square root of 3
Examine all eight possible combinations of the existence and
nonexistence of these square roots.
what the hell all this means, i don't know.
no pressure, but an answer by sunday night would be helpful. maybe you
know of someone at Rutgers or Princeton that couls help out?
thanks in advance,
