Abstract

Let p be an odd prime, and letx be a primitive root of p. Suppose that we write theelements of Z(p-1) as 1, 2,..., p - 1, and that, wherever we evaluate x(1) (mod p), we always write it as one of 1, 2...., p - 1. Let l = (l(1),...,l(p-1)) be a terrace for Z(p-1). Then l is said to be a logarithmic terrace if e= (e(1),...,e(p-1)), defined by e(i) = x(li) (mod p), is also a terrace for Z(p-1). We study properties of logarithmic terraces, in particular investigating terraces which are simultaneously logarithmic for two different primitive roots.
