INTRODUCTION:-

p

Fermat's little theorem (not to be confused with Fermat's last theorem) states that if p is a prime number, then for any integer a, a − a will be

evenly divisible by p. This can be expressed in the notation of modular arithmetic as follows:

p−1

A variant of this theorem is stated in the following form: if p is a prime and a is an integer coprime to p, then a − 1 will be evenly divisible by p. In

the notation of modular arithmetic:

Fermat's little theorem is the basis for the Fermat primality test.

PROOF:-

Let us assume that a is positive and not divisible by p. The idea is that if we write down the sequence of numbers

and reduce each one modulo p, the resulting sequence turns out to be a rearrangement of

Therefore, if we multiply together the numbers in each sequence, the results must be identical modulo p:

Finally, we may "cancel out" the numbers 1, 2, ..., p − 1 from both sides of this equation, obtaining

Lucas primality test

In computational number theory, the Lucas test is a primality test for a natural number n; it requires that the prime factors of n − 1 be already known.[1] It

is the basis of the Pratt certificate that gives a concise verification that n is prime.

Concepts

Let n be a positive integer. If there exists an integer 1 < a < n such that

The reason for the correctness of this claim is as follows: if the first equality holds for a, we can deduce that a and n are coprime. If a also survives the

second step, then the order of a in the group (Z/nZ)* is equal to n−1, which means that the order of that group is n−1 (because the order of every element

of a group divides the order of the group), implying that n is prime. Conversely, if n is prime, then there exists a primitive root modulo n, or generator of the

group (Z/nZ)*. Such a generator has order | (Z/nZ)*| = n−1 and both equalities will hold for any such primitive root.

Note that if there exists an a < n such that the first equality fails, a is called a Fermat witness for the compositeness of n.

Example

For example, take n = 71. Then n − 1 = 70 and the prime factors of 70 are 2, 5 and 7. We randomly select an a < n of 17. Now we compute:

For all integers a it is known that

Therefore, the multiplicative order of 17 (mod 71) is not necessarily 70 because some factor of 70 may also work above. So check 70 divided by its prime

factors:

Unfortunately, we get that 1710≡1 (mod 71). So we still don't know if 71 is prime or not.

Again, this does not show that the multiplicative order of 11 (mod 71) is 70 because some factor of 70 may also work. So check 70 divided by its prime

factors:

(To carry out these modular exponentiations, one could use a fast exponentiation algorithm like binary or addition-chain exponentiation).
