Printed in the Netherlands. Introduction and main results Let K denote an algebraic number field of degree d over Q. For every place v of K we define d" : = [Kv: Qv]. If a finite place v of K lies over the prime p, we write v 1 p, and for an infinite place v of K we write v oo . We normalize the absolute value 1. 1, by where a e Q and 1 . dénotes the ordinary absolute value in R or in C. Then, for any a E K ", we have the product formula The absolute height h(a) of a E K is defined by the formula and the absolute height h(a) of the vector a = t (a o, a 1 ) ~K2 by For the whole paper we suppose that q is some fixed element from K satisfying |q|v &#x3E; 1 for some fixed valuation v of K, and furthermore lql,, ~ 1 for all w oo.
