I copied this from the AoPS Formulary, and it needs to be converted to Wiki format. Please help! **Also, credit for writing this GREAT article goes to ZetaX**. --Sean 23:56, 26 June 2006 (EDT)

I take issue with the notation for integers modulo *n*. When *n* is prime, this notation is used for the *p*-adic integers, which do not really have any other notation (well perhaps , but that's not much different). --ComplexZeta 01:22, 27 June 2006 (EDT)

I also don't like the notation , but that is what most people use on ML/AoPS.

\text doesn't work and \textrm doesn't seem to recognize spaces. My suggestion is to change to symbols. For example, the first Legendre symbol case: $1 \leftrightarrow \exist x\in\mathbb{Z}_p^*:x^2\equiv a\mod p$ (Error compiling LaTeX. ! Undefined control sequence.) Does anyone have a better solution?
