Leonhard euler's totient function, \(\phi (n)\), is an important object in number theory, of what is today known as euler's theorem or the euler-fermat theorem. We can factor a power ab as some product ap−1 ap−1 p−1 ac, where c is some small number (in fact, c = b mod (p − 1)) when we take ab mod p, all the. Fermat's and euler's theorems & ø(n) – primality testing – chinese remainder theorem – primitive called the euler totient function ø(n) euler totient. Here's a much faster, working way, based on this description on wikipedia: thus if n is a positive integer, then φ(n) is the number of integers k.
