What do you mean by minimum universal exponent?
I suppose that by N you refer to N, the set of natural numbers.

Yes N means set of natural numbers.To give an example of min. u.e.:
5 is the minimum universal exponent (w.r.t base 2) i.e.
(2^5)  1 =31 and 5 is the minimum exp such that 2^n  1 is congruent to
zero (mod 31).
