Fundamental units and cycles. I. (English) Zbl 0352.10002

Cet ouvrage est une version détaillé d’un autre ouvrage [Pac. J. Math. 63, 37–61 (1976; Zbl 0335.10010)]. Le but principal est de donner une déscription explicite du dévelopement en fraction continue pour certaines classes de racines quadratiques.


11A55 Continued fractions
11R11 Quadratic extensions
11R27 Units and factorization
