Determination of a unique solution of the quadratic partition for primes p 1 (mod 7)

Budh Singh Nashier and A. R. Rajwade

Vol. 72 (1977), No. 2, 513–521
Abstract

Let p be a rational prime 1 (mod 7). Williams shows that a certain triple of a Diophantine system of quadratic equations has exactly six nontrivial solutions. We obtain here a congruence condition which uniquely fixes one of these six solutions. Further if 2 is not a seventh power residue (mod p) then we obtain a congruence (mod p) for 2(p1)7 in terms of the above uniquely fixed solution.
