The following theorem was first proven by Pierre de Fermat (1601 – 1665). It is called “little” to distinguish it from Fermat’s last theorem.

**Theorem**: Fermat's Little Theorem

Let $m > 1$ be a positive integer and let $\phi(m)$ denote the Euler function. For any integer $a\in\mathbb Z$ which is co-prime to $m$ we have the congruence $$a^{\phi(m)}(m)\equiv 1(m).$$
