Topic: 

Reduction of Groups of Rational Numbers

Description: 

We shall start by outlining some aspects of the long history of the Artin Conjecture. Then we shall consider a multiplicative subgroup G of Q*. If p is a prime for which the valuation vp(x) = 0 for every x in G, then the group Gp ={x (mod p): x is in G} is a well defined subgroup of Fp. We will consider various properties of Gp as p varies and propose various new results in analogy with the old Artin Conjecture for Primitive roots.
