In the famous ancient Chinese Mathematical book Sun Tzu's computing Sutra, there is a title called "unknown things". The original Article is as follows:

I don't know the number of things, but the number of three is two, the number of five is three, and the number of seven is two. Ry?

That is, an integer is divided by three integers, divided by five integers, and divided by seven integers.

Chinese mathematician Qin Jiuyi made a complete answer In 1247. The answer is as follows:

Three people walk 70 Greek, five trees plum blossom one, seven son reunion is half a month, except five will know

This solution is actually, first, we use the derivative technique invented by Qin Jiuyi to find the smallest 70 in the multiples of the minimum public multiples of 5 and 7 35 divided by the remainder of 3 (this is called the reciprocal of 35 to 3 in number theory ), the minimum public multiples of 3 and 7, 21, and 5, respectively, 15, and 15, respectively, are opposite to the reciprocal of 7. Then

233 is one of the possible solutions. The addition and subtraction of 3, 5, and 7 is several times the minimum public multiple of 105, so the minimum solution is 233 divided by the remainder of 105 23.

Note: This solution is not the simplest, because in fact 35 is in line with the characteristics except 3 + 2, so the half solution is: the half solution plus a positive integer multiple of 105 is the solution.

If the above solution is generalized to the general situation, a constructive Proof of the Chinese Remainder Theorem is obtained.

Generally,China Remainder TheoremIt refers to any integer if there are two-byte integers:A1,A2 ,...AN, The following simultaneous equations have a public solution to the modulus:

To facilitate expression, use a common function for any positive integerεI,JIt is called the Kronecker. Definition:

With this symbol, the process of solving the above general equations of the same equations can be given, which is completed in two steps.
