Wilson quotients for composite moduli

Abstract

An analogue for composite moduli m ≥ 2 of the Wilson quotient is studied. Various congruences are derived, and the question of when these quotients are divisible by m is investigated; such an m will be called a “Wilson number”. It is shown that numbers in certain infinite classes cannot be Wilson numbers. Eight new Wilson numbers up to 500 million were… (More)
