Consider a set of algebraic integers which lie on the unit circle, they will generate a multiplicative subgroup of $\mathbb S^1$. These Do these objects do they have a name?
I would guess they contain useful arithmetic/number theoretic information, for example if the elements of the generating subset are set is the set of roots of a an irreducible polynomial, is it really so? What what kind of information do would they contain?
Has the group structure of the units elements of an extension a number field which lie on the unit circle $\mathbb S^1$ and the subgroup of it which is made up of algebraic integers been used to obtain results which can be used in actual applicationstudied.
Would greatly appreciate if you could suggest a reference.
It would be real nice if you could answer keeping in mind that I do not know much Algebra/ commutative algebra/ algebraic geometry. But I hope that does not stop you from answering.
