Let $m$ be a square-free positive integer, $m\equiv 2,3 \; (\bmod \; 4)$. We show that the number field $K=Q(i,\sqrt[4]{m})$ is non-monogene, that is it does not admit any power integral bases of type $\{1,\alpha,\ldots,\alpha^7\}$. In this infinite parametric family of Galois octic fields we construct an integral basis and show non-monogenity using only congruence considerations. Our method yields a new approach to consider monogenity or to prove non-monogenity in algebraic number fields. It… CONTINUE READING
