Abstract: Let be the *p*th root of the mean absolute values of the *p*th powers of a totally real algebraic integer . For each fixed we study the set of such . 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.
