The publication bargains with algorithmic difficulties relating to binary quadratic kinds, corresponding to discovering the representations of an integer by means of a sort with integer coefficients, discovering the minimal of a kind with actual coefficients and identifying equivalence of 2 types. that allows you to resolve these difficulties, the ebook introduces the reader to special parts of quantity concept corresponding to diophantine equations, relief conception of quadratic kinds, geometry of numbers and algebraic quantity thought. The ebook explains functions to cryptography. It calls for simply easy mathematical wisdom.

P − 1} with y ≡ gk (mod p) . Now y is a quadratic residue modulo p if and only if k is even. Also y (p−1)/2 ≡ g k(p−1)/2 ≡ (−1)k (mod p) . This implies the assertion. 8. Let p = 1237 and ∆ = 17. We compute ∆(p−1)/2 mod p by fast exponentiation. We have p − 1/2 = 618 = 29 + 26 + 25 + 23 + 2. We 3 compute the successive squares and ﬁnd 172 ≡ 289 (mod 1237), 172 ≡ 243 5 6 9 (mod 1237), 172 ≡ 547 (mod 1237), 172 ≡ 1092 (mod 1237), 172 ≡ 256 (mod 1237). Also 289 · 243 · 547 · 1092 · 256 ≡ 1 (mod 1237).

15. We explain how kronecker calculates 17 3 = 2 3 =− 1 3 =− 0 1 17 3 . = −1. 16. Algorithm kronecker(m, n) takes time O size(m) size (n) to compute m n . Proof. 3 in [BS96]. 16 we also obtain an estimate for the running time of Algorithm numberOfPrimeForms. 17. Algorithm O size(∆) size(p) . 4 kronecker (m, n) Input: Integers m and n Output: m n if 2 | n and 2 | m then return 0. if sign(m) = sign(n) = −1 then j ← −1 else j ← 1. m ← |m|, n ← |n|. 4 Computing square roots modulo p In order to determine prime forms, algorithm primeForm must ﬁnd a square root of a discriminant modulo a prime number.

Each iteration requires time O e(size(p))2 . The number of iterations is e − 1. This proves the assertion. 3. 21. 6 The case of a composite integer We now determine R(∆, a) and R∗ (∆, a) for arbitrary positive integers a. We ﬁrst prove that the functions R(∆, ·) and R∗ (∆, ·) are multiplicative. 1. If a1 and a2 are coprime positive integers, then R(∆, a1 a2 ) = R(∆, a1 )R(∆, a2 ) and R∗ (∆, a1 a2 ) = R∗ (∆, a1 )R∗ (∆, a2 ). Proof. For an integer a let S(∆, a) = {b + 2aZ : b2 ≡ ∆ (mod 4a)} . The Chinese remainder theorem implies that the map S(∆, a1 a2 ) → S(∆, a1 ) × S(∆, a2 ) b + 2a1 a2 Z → (b + 2a1 Z, b + 2a2 Z) is a bijection.
