Abstract: Let denote the locally free class group, that is the group of stable isomorphism classes of locally free modules, where is the ring of algebraic integers in the number field and is a finite group. We show how to compute the Swan subgroup, , of when , a primitive th root of unity, , where is an odd (rational) prime so that and 2 is inert in We show that, under these hypotheses, this calculation reduces to computing a quotient ring of a polynomial ring; we do the computations obtaining for several primes a nontrivial divisor of These calculations give an alternative proof that the fields for =11, 13, 19, 29, 37, 53, 59, and 61 are not HilbertSpeiser.
