Keywords:
Fibonacci numbers; Wall's question; Wall-Sun-Sun prime; Fibonacci-Wieferich prime; modular periodicity; periodic sequence
Summary:
In this paper we find certain equivalent formulations of Wall's question and derive two interesting criteria that can be used to resolve this question for particular primes.
