Mar 5 awarded Quorum Mar 2 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. Mar 2 awarded Promoter Mar 2 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?

Dec 14 accepted Prove that $(\mathbb{Z}/3\mathbb{Z})^\times/((\mathbb{Z}/3\mathbb{Z})^\times)^2$ is isomorphic to $\{\pm1\}$. Dec 14 accepted What does the notation $(F_p^{\times})^2$ mean where $F=\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$? Dec 14 comment What does the notation $(F_p^{\times})^2$ mean where $F=\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$? Thanks, that helps a lot!
