GT12. Aut(Z/n) and Fermat's Little Theorem

Abstract Algebra: We show that Aut(Z/n) is isomorphic to (Z/n)*, the group of units in Z/n. In turn, we show that the units consist of all m in Z/n with gcd(m,n)=1. Using (Z/n)*, we define the Euler totient function and state and prove Fermat's Little Theorem: if p is a prime, then, for all integers k, p divides k^p - k.
