The problem is that in practice it is impossible to compute (n − 1)! modulo n in a reasonable amount of time 34 1 A Brief History of Prime for any integer that is not quite small. In Chapter 12 we will seek to give a better understanding of what counts as “small” or “large” in terms of modern computing.

D) What can you deduce if n has three distinct prime divisors? Zsigmondy’s Theorem holds in greater generality, though we will not prove the following result here. 16. [Zsigmondy] Let an = cn − dn , where c > d are positive coprime integers. Then an always has a primitive divisor unless (1) c = 2, d = 1 and n = 6; or (2) c + d = 2k and n = 2. 17. Find some nontrivial examples of case (2) of the theorem. 19 on p. 169. 18. Prove that the sequence (un ) does not satisfy a Zsigmondy Theorem in each of the following cases.

Fermat’s Little Theorem says that, for any prime p, 2p−1 − 1 is divisible by p. It sometimes happens that 2p−1 −1 is divisible by p2 . Find all the primes p with this property for p < 106 . Such primes are called Wieferich primes, and it is not known if there are infinitely many of them. 12. *A pair of congruences that arises in the Catalan problem (see p. 57) for odd primes p, q is pq−1 ≡ 1 (mod q 2 ) and q p−1 ≡ 1 (mod p2 ). 22) is called a Wieferich pair. Find all the Wieferich pairs with p, q < 104 .
