JJL We also express (1) by saying u lies in the space spanned by ul, u2, 9 + . , II, (implying integral coefficients xi). An arbitrary module need not have a basis. For example, the set of a11 rational numbers (positive, negative, and zero) has no basis. [For, if ul,‘;‘, u, corresponded to fractions pl/ql, . . ] Thus the elements of a module cannot be expected to be “too close” if the module has a basis. The matter of “not being too close” is expressed by means of two’ terms : jïnite dimensionality and discreteness.

We next define the natural extension of a character x(y) modulo m to a character modulo M where M is the resolution modulus of ~(y). The processi-strivial, of course, unlessthe values of y for which (y, M) = 1 include more values than those for which (y, m) = 1. As a nontrivial case, for example, if m = 15 and M = 3, we might have a character ~+(y) modulo 15 which is none other than x3(y) but limited in domain of definition to (y, 15) = 1 and trivially extended to 0 when (y, 15) > 1. ) TABLE y(mod15) x+(Y) X3(Y) 0 0 0 1 1 1 2 -1 -1 3 0 0 4 1 1 5 0 -1 6 0 0 8 7 8 1 *-1 1 -1 9 0 0 10 0 1 11 -1 -1 12 0 0 13 1 1 14 -1 -1 We would like to know how to retrieve x3(y) from ~+(y) by the “natural” processof noticing that x+(y) is determinedmodulo 3 aslong as (y, 5) = 1.
