- 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

Oh, OK. This should all have gone in discuss, sorry. My bad.

Here's the discussion that was on the page before I cleaned it up:

- prime: cmuna'ux1 is a prime number in integral domain x2

*I'd consider that to mean "unit" and not "prime". I suggest:*- prime: ralju namcu: ralna'un1=r1 is a prime number in integral domain r2
- Something more like
*zilterfendi*, i should think... - unit: jicmu namcu: cmuna'un1=j1 is a unit of integral domain j2

- I have no idea what "unit" means that "integer" doesn't cover, and that's covered by mulna'u (seeAbstract 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

- "prime" is clearly something with
*selci*. Furthermore, it's clearly a*mulna'u*; I suggest*mulna'usle*, which I'll now go put in jbovlaste(external link) --rlpowell

- "prime" is clearly something with

*ko'a goi lo na pilji be ko'e bei ko'e goi lo kantu namcu na du ko'a*

Re: Number theory The original text of the page had:

n1=j1 is a unit of integral domain j2

for cmuna'u, but that's not what arj entered on jbovlaste. Is this likely to be a problem?
