Prime numbers

This file deals with prime numbers: natural numbers p ≥ 2 whose only divisors are p and 1.

Important declarations

All the following declarations exist in the namespace nat.

def nat.prime  :
→ Prop

prime p means that p is a prime number, that is, a natural number at least 2 whose only divisors are p and 1.

Equations
theorem nat.prime.two_le {p : } :
nat.prime p2 p

theorem nat.prime.one_lt {p : } :
nat.prime p1 < p

@[instance]
def nat.prime.one_lt' (p : ) [hp : fact (nat.prime p)] :
fact (1 < p)

theorem nat.prime.ne_one {p : } :
nat.prime pp 1

theorem nat.prime_def_lt {p : } :
nat.prime p 2 p ∀ (m : ), m < pm pm = 1

theorem nat.prime_def_lt' {p : } :
nat.prime p 2 p ∀ (m : ), 2 mm < p¬m p

theorem nat.prime_def_le_sqrt {p : } :
nat.prime p 2 p ∀ (m : ), 2 mm nat.sqrt p¬m p

This instance is slower than the instance decidable_prime defined below, but has the advantage that it works in the kernel.

If you need to prove that a particular number is prime, in any case you should not use dec_trivial, but rather by norm_num, which is much faster.

theorem nat.prime.pos {p : } :
nat.prime p0 < p

theorem nat.prime.pred_pos {p : } :

theorem nat.prime.not_dvd_one {p : } :

theorem nat.not_prime_mul {a b : } :

def nat.min_fac_aux  :

If n < k * k, then min_fac_aux n k = n, if k | n, then min_fac_aux n k = k. Otherwise, min_fac_aux n k = min_fac_aux n (k+2) using well-founded recursion. If n is odd and 1 < n, then then min_fac_aux n 3 is the smallest prime factor of n.

Equations
def nat.min_fac  :

Returns the smallest prime factor of n ≠ 1.
