Tool to compute Phi: the Euler Totient. Euler's Totient function φ(n) represents the number of integers inferior to n and coprime with n.

**Euler's totient** (or Eulers totient's function), noted with the greek letter phi : $ \varphi(n) $ or $ \phi(n) $ is the value representing the number of integers less than $ n $ that are coprime with $ n $

Euler Phi totient calculator computes the value of Phi(n) in several ways, the best known formula is $$ \varphi(n) = n \prod_{p \mid n} \left( 1 - \frac{1}{p} \right) $$

where $ p $ is a prime factor which divides $ n $.

To calculate the value of the Euler indicator/totient, first find the prime factor decomposition of $ n $. If $ p_i $ are the $ m $ distinct prime factors of $ n $, then the formula becomes:

$$ \varphi(n) = n \prod_{i=1}^m \left( 1 - \frac{1}{p_i} \right) $$

For $ n = 6 $, only the numbers $ 1 $ and $ 5 $ are coprime with $ 6 $ so $ \varphi(6) = 2 $. This is confirmed by the formula for $ n = 6 = 2^1 \times 3^1 $, as: $$ \varphi(6) = 6 (1-\frac{1}{2}) (1-\frac{1}{3}) = 2 $$

If $ n $ is a prime number, then $ \varphi(n) = n-1 $

**Euler totient** phi function is used in modular arithmetic. It is used in Euler's theorem :

If $ n $ is an integer superior or equal to 1 and $ a $ an integer coprime with $ n $, then $$ a^{\varphi(n)} \equiv 1 \mod n $$

Example: $ n=7 $ , $ a=3 $ and $ \varphi(7) = 6 $ so $ 3^6 = 729 \equiv 1 \mod 7 $

This theorem is the basis of the RSA encryption.

The Euler indicator is an essential function of modular arithmetic:

- A positive integer $ p $ is a prime number if and only if $ \varphi(p) = p - 1 $

- The value $ \varphi(n) $ is even for all $ n > 2 $
