introduced by him in 1801) — this is the reason why some authors call

But the number of numbers B) is m,
and this is equal to the number of the residues modm, i.e...
The equation cp(n) = <jj(»+1) in natural numbers n has been a sub-
subject of interest for several authors (cf...
Thus we see that the equation if (n) = 2-36t+I, where 7; is
a natural number, has precisely two solutions, n = 36J:+I and n = 2-36i+2...
If there existed an odd natural
number да such that <p[n) = w, then n would be the product of different odd prime
factors which, in addition, would be of the form Жк = 227>+1...
In virtue of exercise 3, the number щ is a divisor of a number
m whose digits (in the scale of ten) are equal to 1...
It follows immediately from theorem 8 that for any natural number
in there exists the least natural number X (m) such that in [ <j*'m' — 1 for
Hence, using tbe relations a = ga = (^(mo&p), we find
а=адк№~1'>''=ды+к<-р-11''=;д'а"'=(ды)п(шо6.р), which proves that a

Consider an exponential congruence
a1 = Ь(топ.р),
where a, b are integers not divisible by the prime p...
Any natural number may be uniquely expressed as a deci-
decimal in the scale of g (g being a natural number > 1), i.e...
These are: one term
periods, the term being any of the numbers 1, 153, 370, 371, 407; period consisting
of two numbers, either of 136 and 244 or of 919 and 1459; finally, periods consist-
consisting of three numbers, either of 65, 250, 133 or of 160, 217, 252 (see also Iseki )...
Representation of numbers by decimals
But, in view of A4), rn~rn_l = -Ц for any n — 1, 2, ..., whence c,,

This shows that any real number ж which is not the quotient of an inte-
integer by a power of g has precisely one representation as series A3), where
<л are integers satisfying conditions A1)...
The expansion thus obtained for number e is as follows:
11-1 1-1-2 1-1-2-3
Let a be a natural number > 2...
Therefore formula B5) gives us an expansion of the irra-

The greatest of them is the

Then the denomina-

On the other hand, if for some natural numbers a0 and at Ф 2a0
number D of D1) is natural, then, since 2a0a1+l is odd, number a\+l
(as a divisor of it) must also be odd; so number ax is even and, since num-
number D of D1) is an integer and, consequently, —\-^ 1 =

In view of formulae C) we have

If m is a real irrational number satisfying the equation Aa?-\-Bso-\-C
