Reviews and Descriptions of Tables and Books

1962 Mathematics of Computation  
This slim volume lists all 28,597 primitive roots of the 167 odd primes less than 1000. These tables were computed on an IBM 650. The program and running times are not indicated. The most extensive earlier table, as noted by the author, is due to Chebyshev and extends to p = 353. There also is a small table of statistical information. Perhaps the most interesting column here lists the number of (positive) primitive roots less than p/2 for each prime p. Of the 87 primes m -1 (mod 4), eight have exactly one-half of
