On the basic character of residue classes.

Let t, b be mutually prime positive integers. We say that the residue class t mod b is basic if there exists n such that t ≡ -1 mod b; otherwise t is not basic. In this paper we relate the basic character of t mod b to the quadratic character of t modulo the prime factors of b. If all prime factors p of b satisfy p ≡ 3 mod 4, then t is basic mod b if t is a quadratic non-residue mod p for all such p; and t is not basic mod b if t is a quadratic residue mod p for all such p. If, for all prime factors...
