Abstract

The Chinese Remainder Theorem is one of the oldest theorems in mathematics. It states that a system of linear congruences with pairwise relatively prime moduli has a unique solution modulo the product of its pairwise relatively prime moduli. In this talk, we will prove the Chinese Remainder Theorem and illustrate with an example.
