For n = 2, the theorem is clearly true. We proceed by induction. Suppose that the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic holds for all natural numbers strictly less than some a > 1. We want to deduce the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic for a. Let D = {d | d > 1, d a} denote the set of non-identity divisors of a. The set D is nonempty since it contains a, so it has a smallest element, which we denote p. This smallest element must be a prime because if it had a nontrivial divisor that would be a smaller element of D.

Using topology in this setting might seem odd, but perhaps Euler’s proof using the harmonic series seemed odd when it first appeared. We don’t wish to stretch the point, but it could just be that Furstenburg’s proof points forward to new ways of looking at arithmetic in just the same way as Euler’s did. Profound structures in the integers have certainly been uncovered using methods from ergodic theory, combinatorics, functional analysis, and Fourier analysis; see a survey paper of Bergelson [11], the book by Furstenberg [64], and a new approach in a paper of Gowers [72] for some of these startling results.

For property (2), let a, b = 0 ∈ R and write ab−1 = p + iq with p, q ∈ Q. Now define m, n ∈ Z by m ∈ [p − 1/2, p + 1/2), n ∈ [q − 1/2, q + 1/2). Let q = m + in ∈ R and r = a − b(m + in). For r = 0, N (r) = N ((ab−1 − m − in)b) = N (p + iq − m − in)N (b) = N (p − m + i(q − n))N (b) 1 4 + 1 4 N (b) < N (b), showing property (2). 3. 2(2) are uniquely determined. Is the same true when R = Z[i]? In any ring, we define greatest common divisors in exactly the same way as before. A greatest common divisor is defined up to multiplication by units (invertible elements).
