Let R be the ring of S-integers of an algebraic function field (in one variable) over a perfect field, where S is finite and not empty. It is shown that for every positive integer N there exist elements of R that can not be written as a sum of at most N units. Moreover, all quadratic global function fields whose rings of integers are generated by their units are determined.
On rings of integers generated by their units
We give an affirmative answer to the following question by Jarden and Narkiewicz: Is it true that every number field has a finite extension L such that the ring of integers of L is generated by its

In 2007, Jarden and Narkiewicz raised the following question: Is it true that each algebraic number field has a finite extension L such that the ring of integers of L is generated by its units (as a

Let R be a commutative ring with $$1\in R$$1∈R and $$R^{*}$$R∗ be the multiplicative group of its units. In 1969, Nagell introduced the concept of an exceptional unit, namely a unit u such that

This paper focuses on two topics in more detail, namely a problem that origins from a conjecture of Rényi and Erdős (on the number of terms of the square of a polynomial) and another one that originated from a question of Zelinsky ( on the unit sum number problem).
