Unformatted text preview: E in terms of r and s . For example, decide what E ought to be when p = 144169 = (315) 2 + (212) 2 . 7. Let be a character of order 4 on F * p , so that 2 is the quadratic symbol ( p ) . Show that E =2 Re J , where J = J ( , 2 ). Check this general formula by calculating E and J explicitly in the case where p = 5 and is the character mapping 2 to i . 8. Regard J as an element of Z [ i ]. Show that J + 1 is divisible by (2 + 2 i ). (See page 168 of the book if you get stuck.) 9. Suppose that J = + i where and are integers. Explain why is odd, is even, + + 1 is divisible by 4 and 2 + 2 = p . Recapitulate what you have learned in the form of a rule for calculating N p when p is congruent to 1 mod 4....
