Additive structure of nonmonogenic simplest cubic fields
Abstract
We consider nonmonogenic simplest cubic fields $K=\mathbb{Q}(\rho)$ in the family introduced by Shanks, and among these, we focus in the fields whose generalized module index $[\mathcal{O}_K:\mathbb{Z}[\rho]]$ is a prime number $p$. We prove that these fields arise exactly for $p=3$ or $p\equiv1\,(\mathrm{mod}\,6)$ and we use the method introduced in arXiv:2005.12312 to find the additive indecomposables of $\mathcal{O}_K$. We determine the whole structure of indecomposables for the family with $p=3$ and obtain that the behaviour is not uniform with respect to the indecomposables of $\mathbb{Z}[\rho]$. From the knowledge of the indecomposables we derive some arithmetical information on $K$, namely: the smallest and largest norms of indecomposables, the Pythagoras number of $\mathcal{O}_K$ and bounds for the minimal rank of universal quadratic forms over $K$.
