Their congruence provided a unified setting for many congruences proved previously by other authors using various means. The Hardy-Williams idea was as follows. Let d be the discriminant of a quadratic field. Suppose that d is odd and let d = PIP2· . . Pn be its unique decomposition into prime discriminants. Then, for any positive integer k coprime with d, the congruence holds trivially as each Legendre-Jacobi-Kronecker symbol (~) has the value + 1 or -1. Expanding this product gives ~ eld e:=l (mod4) where e runs through the positive and negative divisors of d and v (e) denotes the number of distinct prime factors of e. Summing this congruence for o < k < Idl/8, gcd(k, d) = 1, gives ~ (-It(e) ~ (~) =:O(mod2n). eld o ## Table of contents (6 chapters) Table of contents (6 chapters) • Short Character Sums Pages 1-49 Urbanowicz, Jerzy (et al.) • Class Number Congruences Pages 51-76 Urbanowicz, Jerzy (et al.) • Congruences Between the Orders of Pages 77-116 Urbanowicz, Jerzy (et al.) • Congruences among the Values of 2-Adic Pages 117-180 Urbanowicz, Jerzy (et al.) • Applications of Zagier’s Formula (I) Pages 181-202 Urbanowicz, Jerzy (et al.) ### Buy this book eBook$89.00
