Abstract:

This paper defines indices for a modulus m which admits no primitive root, like the modulus m 100. If m msub1msub2, with msub1msub2 1, and if msub1 has the primitive root a sub1, and msub2 has the primitive root asub2, then the index of a number N, with N,m 1, is defined by an appropriate 2-dimensional vector. As an example we choose m 100, msub1 4, msub2 25. The paper concludes with the construction of a circular slide-rule for the modulus m 100.
