Number Theory Essentials Prime Numbers A number a I is a prime iff p it's only factors are itself and 1 Equivalently , x I , gcd ( x,a ) = 1 a, b I are relatively prime iff : gcd ( a,b ) = 1 • Fundamental theorem of arithmetic: Every integer has a unique factorization that is a 3 product of prime powers.

Modular arithmetic Form: a b mod n he modulo relation partitions the integers The modulo relation partitions the integers into congruence classes The congruence class of an integer ' a ' is the set of all integers congruent to ' a ' modulo ' n '. a b mod n asserts that ' a ' and ' b ' are members of the same congruence class modulo ' n ' 5
