There is a finite list of primes p1 , . . , pr √ 1 with the property that Z[ d, p1 , . . , p1r ] has the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic. Combining the techniques learned thus far allows a special case of Siegel’s Theorem to be proved. An integer is called square-free if it is not divisible by the square of any integer greater than 1. 18.

6 Proving the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic 37 The next result is fundamental to the structure of the integers; it is an easy consequence of the Euclidean Algorithm and is sometimes referred to as Bezout’s Lemma. 23. If d = gcd(a, b) with a, b ∈ Z not both zero, then there are numbers x, y ∈ Z with d = ax + by. 27) Proof. The idea is to work your way up the chain of equations in the Euclidean Algorithm, always expressing the remainder in terms of the previous two remainders. Writing ∗ for an integer, we get gcd(a, b) = rn = rn−2 − rn−1 qn = rn−2 (1 + qn qn−1 ) − rn−3 qn = rn−3 · ∗ + rn−4 · ∗ ..

Let c = q2 · · · qr , and define a0 = a − pc = p(b − c) = (q1 − p)c. 7 Euclid’s Theorem Revisited 39 Now 1 a0 < a and the divisors (b − c), (q1 − p), and c are all less than a. By the inductive hypothesis, the numbers a0 , (b − c), (q1 − p), and c all have unique prime decompositions. 28), the prime p must appear in any prime decomposition of a0 and therefore (by uniqueness) must also appear in the decomposition of (q1 − p) or that of c. Now p cannot appear in a prime decomposition of (q1 − p) because that would require p q1 , which is impossible, as p and q1 are distinct primes.
