Mar5 awarded Quorum Mar2 comment Does anyone know when the following definition was formulated. Feit and Mollin proved this using Algebraic Number Fields. Robertson and Matthews proved in using Continued Fractions. Walsh generalized the result. Mollin has since given a major generalization. Mar2 awarded Promoter Mar2 comment Does anyone know when the following definition was formulated. Bill, Why do you think that the fact that $X^2-PY^2=a$, $P=a^2+(2b)^2$ an odd prime, has integer solutions did not get proved until 2000? It seems that it should have been proved much earlier, considering the proof given by Robertson/Matthews using continued fractions in 2005? Mar2 accepted Does anyone know when the following definition was formulated. Mar1 comment Does anyone know when the following definition was formulated. Ok definition of an algorithm but thank you.

Dec14 accepted Prove that $(\mathbb{Z}/3\mathbb{Z})^\times/((\mathbb{Z}/3\mathbb{Z})^\times)^2$ is isomorphic to $\{\pm1\}$. Dec14 accepted What does the notation $(F_p^{\times})^2$ mean where $F=\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$? Dec14 comment What does the notation $(F_p^{\times})^2$ mean where $F=\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$? Thanks, that helps a lot! Dec14 asked What does the notation $(F_p^{\times})^2$ mean where $F=\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$?
