    A Gaussian unit is a Gaussian integer \(z\) such that \(\dfrac{1}{z}\) is also a Gaussian integer.

    Well, we essentially want to show that \(\pm i,\pm 1\; |\; 1\) and they are the only ones.

    What math is this? I see on the MSE thing it says: abstract-algebra, ring-theory. So is it both?

    Ring theory is a subset of abstract algebra. This is theoretical mathematics also known as pure mathematics.

    @Opcode that is why they say that among a Ph.D in physics, a Ph.D in CS, a Ph.D in theoretical math and a large pepperoni pizza, the most different thing is a Ph.D in theoretical math. The other three can feed a family of four X-D

    @Opcode the abstract algebra is the generalization of the algebra we do. They make use of properties of these algebraic structures to solve the problem than we solve things directly.
