Partition Of The Primorial Square By Remainder Agreement Counts

Authors: Sally Myers Moite

For the n-th prime P, P# or P primorial is the product of all the primes up to and including P. Let (c, d) be a pair of integers that represents a point in the primorial square, 1 < c, d < P#. For each prime p, 2 < p < P, the remainders of c and d mod p may be the same, opposite (sum to a multiple of p) or neither. Count the number of remainders of (c, d) which have same, opposite or either agreement for any such P. This gives three partitions of the primorial square, by counts for same, opposite and either agreement. Polynomial multiplication is used to find the number of points in each part of these partitions.
