On the Structure of the Generalized Group of Units

  title={On the Structure of the Generalized Group of Units},
  author={Therrar Kadri and Mohammad El-Hindi},
Let R be a finite commutative ring with identity and U(R) be its group of units. In 2005, El-Kassar and Chehade presented a ring structure for U(R) and as a consequence they generalized this group of units to the generalized group of units U (R) defined iteratively as the group of the units of U(R), with U (R) = U(R). In this paper, we examine the structure of this group, when R = Zn. We find a decomposition of U (Zn) as a direct product of cyclic groups for the general case of any k, and we… Expand

On The Generalized Multiplicative Euler Phi Function
The generalized group of units of the ring modulo n was first introduced by El-Kassar and Chehade, written as Uk(Zn). This allows us to formulate a new generalization to the Euler phi function φ(n),Expand


Factoring Finite Factor Rings
The most descriptive way to represent a finite Abelian group is as a direct product of cyclic groups. In this form, many important characteristics such as order, exponent, and rank are immediatelyExpand

It is shown that for all constants C ∈ R, the number of modular multiplications necessary to obtain this certificate is greater than Clog p for a set of primes p with relative asymptotic density 1. Expand
An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers
THIS book must be welcomed most warmly into X the select class of Oxford books on pure mathematics which have reached a second edition. It obviously appeals to a large class of mathematical readers.Expand
Prime Chains and Pratt Trees
Prime chains are sequences $$p_{1}, \ldots , p_{k}$$ of primes for which $${p_{j+1} \equiv 1}$$ (mod pj) for each j. We introduce three new methods for counting long prime chains. The first is usedExpand
