Hi all.

I'm working in the set that is formed by extending the integers mod p (p is prime and equal to 3 mod 4) by including i = [itex]\sqrt{-1}[/itex]: (Z/pZ). I want to know if the exists a 'z' in (Z/pZ)for a given non-zero element 'a' of Z/pZ such that 'a = z[itex]\overline{z}[/itex]'. If anyone could point me in a fruitful direction on this I would be most grateful.

-Z
