Mathematics 41 1 11 December 2002 Final exam preview Instructions As always in this course clarity of exposition is as important as correctness of mathematics 1 N E Recall that a Gaussian integer is a complex number of the form a bi where a and b are integers The Gaussian integers form a ring Zi in which the number 3 has the following special property Given any two Gaussian integers r and s if 3 divides the product rs then 3 divides either r or s or both Using this fact prove the following theorem Given any Gaussian integers r1 r2 divides at least one of the factors ri rquot if3 divides the product r1 in then 3 a Use the Euclidean algorithm to nd an integer solution to the equation 7x 37y l b Explain how to use the solution of part a to nd a solution to the congruence 7x El mod 37 c Use part b to explain why 7 is a unit in the ring Z37 Given a Gaussian integer t that is neither zero nor a unit in Zi a factorization t rs in Zi is nontrivial if neither r nor 3 is a unit a List the units in Zi indicating for each one what its multiplicative inverse is No proof is necessary b Provide a nontrivial factorization of 53 in Zi Explain why your factorization is nontriv ial c Suppose that p is a prime number in Z that has no nontrivial factorizations in Zi Prove that the equation x2 y2 p has no integer solutions Mathematics 41 1 Palmieri 4 Suppose that R is a ring with additive identity 0 An element of r of R is called a zero divisor V39 9 7 if r is nonzero and if there is a nonzero element 3 of R such that rs 0 a Describe a zerodivisor in Z 10 and explain why it is one b Suppose that m is an integer greater than 2 that is not a prime Describe a zerodivisor in Zm and explain why it is one c Suppose that p is a prime number Recall that if p divides a product ab of two integers then it divides at least one of a and b Use this to prove that there are no zerodivisors in Z p One can construct a ringR with six elements R 61 b c d ef with multiplication table as follows a Which element of R is the multiplicative identity Why b Which elements of R are units Why c Is R a eld Why or why not d Can the multiplication table above be the multiplication table of Z 6 with the six ele ments of Z6 being assigned somehow the names a b c d e and f In this problem 1 represents the Euler phifunction and m is a positive integer a De ne b Suppose m pe for some prime number p and positive integer 6 State a formula for in terms of p and e and prove that the formula is correct c State Euler s theorem Make sure that all of the terms occurring are clearly identi ed and any restrictions on them are described d Use Euler s theorem to nd the smallest positive integer c such that 5773 E 6 mod 121 Explain what you are doing in your calculation pointing out in particular how Euler s theorem is used When was Herman Melville born In what city
