## Euler-Fermat theorem

I am not very familiar with this area but your proof appears to assume n>0 (and a>0?) whereas the theorem statement does not?

Can you clarify please?

Clive Counsell

## Re: Euler-Fermat theorem

The statement of the theorem should include n>0, but a>0 is not necessary either for the statement or the proof.
