Abstract: Let $ {M_p}(\alpha )$ be the pth root of the mean absolute values of the pth powers of a totally real algebraic integer $ \alpha $. For each fixed $ p > 0$ we study the set $ {\mathfrak{M}_p}$ of such $ {M_p}(\alpha )$. We show that its structure is as follows: on the nonnegative real line it consists of some isolated points, followed by a small interval in which its structure is as yet undetermined. Beyond this small interval, it is everywhere dense.
