  • I have no idea what "unit" means that "integer" doesn't cover, and that's covered by mulna'u (see Abstract Algebra). --rlpowell

 

    • A unit in an integral domain is a number that every number is divisible by; e.g. the units in Z are 1 and -1, and the units in the Gaussian integers are 1, i, -1, and -i. -phma
