Abstract: For a fixed rational number and integers and we consider the set of primes such that the order of modulo is congruent to . Under the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis (GRH), it can be shown that the set has a natural density . Arithmetical properties of are described, and is compared with : the average density of elements in a field of prime characteristic having order congruent to . It transpires that has a strong tendency to be equal to , or at least to be close to it.
