"Reduced Ideals and Periodic Sequences In Pure Cubic Fields"
The "infrastructure" of quadratic fields is a body of theory developed by Dan Shanks, Richard Mollin and others, in which they relate "reduced ideals" in the rings and sub-rings of integers in quadratic fields with periodicity in continued fraction expansions of quadratic numbers. In this thesis, we develop cubic analogs for several infrastructure theorems. We work in the field K = ℚ (α), where α ^3 =
