Abstract: Let S denote the set of Pisot (or Pisot-Vijayaraghavan) numbers and let $ {S^{(k)}}$ be the kth derived set of S. It is shown that $ {k^{1/2}} \leqslant \min {S^{(k)}}$ and that $ \lim \sup (\min {S^{(k)}}/k) < 1$. The lower bound improves the estimate $ {k^{1/4}} \leqslant \min {S^{(k)}}$ of Dufresnoy and Pisot, while the upper bound improves the obvious estimate $ \min {S^{(k)}} \leqslant k + 1$.
