For ∈Nand (, ) = 1 let := be a primitive th unit root. We define the group of cyclotomic numbers as the multiplicative group generated by elements of the form 1 − with k 0 mod . The group of cyclotomic units is defined as :=Z∩. It is well known that the group of cyclotomic units is of finite index within the full unit group Zof the cyclotomic extension Q. We extend the definitions above allowing = with := and := respectively.
We investigate various aspects of multiplicative relations within and for ∈N. This leads to a geometrical interpretation and visualization of these relations. Of particular interest are the so-called “Ennola” relations that occur when is of the form 4 or where , and are odd primes (with = 60 and = 105 being the smallest examples). We give explicit algorithms that construct these Ennola relations, determine a basis of both and and (recursively) calculate the basis representation of an arbitrary cyclotomic unit or number.
