Description

• 

Important: The numtheory package has been deprecated.  Use the superseding command NumberTheory[ModularRoot] instead.

• 

The function mroot computes the rth root of x modp. It finds an integer y such that yr=xmodp if possible. Otherwise, it returns FAIL.

• 

The order, r, of the root must be prime.

• 

The command with(numtheory,mroot) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
