A truly primitive type of this monograph has existed for approximately and a part years within the type of handwritten notes of a direction that Alain Y ger gave on the college of Maryland. the target, all alongside, has been to give a coherent photo of the virtually mysterious function that analytic tools and, particularly, multidimensional residues, have lately performed in acquiring powerful estimates for difficulties in commutative algebra [71;5]* Our unique curiosity within the topic rested at the indisputable fact that the examine of many questions in harmonic research, like discovering all distribution options (or checking out no matter if there are any) to a process of linear partial differential equa­ tions with consistent coefficients (or, extra ordinarily, convolution equations) in ]R.

N. 46 4 Congruences The integers xi , x0 are distinct solutions and thus xi ≡ x0 (mod p). Therefore, p | p(xi ), i = 1, 2, . . , n, and consequently the polynomial congruence p(x) ≡ 0 (mod p) has n solutions, which is impossible since the polynomial p(x) is of n−1 degree and we have assumed that the theorem holds true for polynomials of degree up to n − 1. Hence, by the Mathematical Induction Principle, it follows that the polynomial congruence an xn + an−1 xn−1 + · · · + a1 x + a0 ≡ 0 (mod p), where an ≡ 0 (mod p), has at most n solutions.

2n−1 p are the desired divisors. Hence, we get σ1 (2n−1 p) = 1 + 2 + 22 + · · · + 2n−1 + p + 2p + 22 p + · · · + 2n−1 p = (p + 1)(1 + 2 + 22 + · · · + 2n−1 ) = (p + 1)(2n − 1) = 2n (2n − 1). Therefore, σ1 (2n−1 p) = 2n (2n − 1), ✷ which is the desired result. 3 (Euler). Every even perfect number can be represented in the form 2n−1 (2n − 1), where n is a positive integer and 2n − 1 is a prime number. Proof. Let k be a perfect number and n − 1 be the greatest power of 2 which divides k. Then, for some positive integer m it holds 2k = σ1 (k) = σ1 (2n−1 m) = σ1 (2n−1 )σ1 (m), since 2n−1 and m are relatively prime integers.

Mk , a1 , a2 , . . , ak ∈ Z, such that gcd(mi , mj ) = 1, for i = j and gcd(ai , mi ) = 1, for every i, where 1 ≤ i, j ≤ k. If m = m1 m2 · · · mk , then the system of linear equations a1 x ≡ b1 (mod m1 ) a2 x ≡ b2 (mod m2 ) .. ak x ≡ bk (mod mk ) has a unique solution modulo m. Proof. At first, we shall prove that the system of linear congruences has a solution modulo m and afterwards we shall prove the uniqueness of that solution. Set ri = m/mi . Then, it is obvious that gcd(ri , mi ) = 1 and thus, the linear congruence ri x ≡ 1 (mod mi ) has a unique solution.
