  Modular Arithmetic
Clock (or modular) arithmetic is arithmetic you do on a clock instead of a number line.
Clock arithmetic has negative numbers, but each negative number has a positive number name.
In clock arithmetic, you can add, subtract, and multiply; you can divide by some numbers.

  Modular arithmetic
Modular arithmetic can be handled mathematically by introducing a congruence relation on the integers that is compatible with the operations of the ring of integers: addition, subtraction, and multiplication.
The notion of modular arithmetic is related to that of the remainder in division.
In music, arithmetic modulo 12 is used in the consideration of the system of twelve-tone equal temperament, where octave and enharmonic equivalency occurs (that is, pitches in a 1∶2 or 2∶1 ratio are equivalent, and C-sharp is considered the same as D-flat).

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Reciprocity law   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In mathematics, in number theory, the law of quadratic reciprocity, conjectured by Euler and Legendre and first satisfactorily proved by Gauss, connects the solvability of two related quadratic equations in modular arithmetic.
As a consequence, it allows us to determine the solvability of any quadratic equation in modular arithmetic.
There are cubic, quartic (biquadratic) and other higher reciprocity laws; but since two of the cube roots of 1 (root of unity) are not real, cubic reciprocity is outside the arithmetic of the rational numbers (and the same applies to higher laws).

 High speed modular arithmetic apparatus having a mask generator and a priority encoder - Patent 4064421
In a high speed arithmetic apparatus, the tally coded output of a modular mask generator addressed by a binary first operand and the tally coded input of a priority encoder are joined together by an interconnecting apparatus.
The interconnecting apparatus is responsive in form to a second operand and to a selected arithmetic operation to provide at the output of the priority encoder the binary resultant of the selected operation executed upon the first and second operands.
A first example of the arithmetic use of the present invention involves the derivation of the integer K complement of an integer X. The K complement of the number X is given by (K-X).
