Is there any way to show symbolically that over the Field F{31^2}, the
(c + d I)^32 = c^2 + d^2
is true.  I am asking because I have this expression in that field:
[(1 + 19 I)^209
and I can do: Mod[(1 + 19 i)^209, 31] = 26 + 28 i (the result I am looking
But I was wondering if it can be shown after verifying the identity above by
Thanks for any input, Flip
