But the sum in the left hand side is twice this sum and thus congruent to 0 modulo 2n contrary hypothesis. 2 Note that multiplication modulo p is isomorphic to addition modulo p− 1 for every prime number p.

One main example, on which I will focus, is the case of a perfectly circular and rigid disc of homogeneous matter that is stationary; and a duplicate disc (rigid and congruent to, made of the same homogeneous material as, at the same temperature as etc. the first) that is rotating about the axis through its centre.

In particular, the RDA cannot just consider an oblate rotating disc and a non-rotating one moulded so as to be congruent to it (as proposed by Hawley 2001, p. 83-84).
