Physical Description

dgitized microfilm

abstract
Starting with a discussion of Fermat’s Little Theorem and Carmichael numbers, Residues and Pseudoprimes will discuss possible structures for Fermat pseudoprimes and those pseudoprime’s relations to quadratic and higher residues. The presenters will begin by touching on the research done by Daniel Shanks on numbers of the form n= (6m+1)(12m+1), where both factors are primes. Then they will introduce the modified form n=(2m+1)(2km+1), again where both factors are prime. After introducing their new form, the presenters will briefly discuss the Scheme and Excel algorithms used to generate and test these numbers. Finally we will talk about the relation we found between the form of the factors and bases for which n is Fermat pseudoprime.
