Abstract: Let , , , for all primes . Then *N* is 0, 1 or a prime. Writing *N* in this form suggests a primality and a squarefreeness test. If we also require that when the prime and then , we say that is a *presentation* of *N*. We list all presentations found for any *N*. We believe our list is complete.
