Integers Mod and the Cyclic Subgroups

The group of integers modulo under addition is shown as points on a circle. The red lines show the cyclic subgroup generated by the element . The points on the circle are the roots of unity, which are given by the points in the set . These roots are given by the formula in the center for .
