Title: Application of Euler’s Phi-Function in Abstract Algebra
Authors: Ahiaku, Patience
Issue Date: 29-Oct-2014
Abstract: Euler’s phi – function ϕ(n) is defined for every positive integer n as follows: ϕ(1)=1 and whenn≥2then ϕ(n) is the number of distinct integers k∈{1,2,…,n-1}such that k and n are relatively prime. This thesis seeks to examine the application of Euler’s phi-function in the study of cyclic groups, field extensions and cyclotomic polynomials of a finite field.
