Abstract The nth roots of unity, which are the roots of z n − 1, obviously all lie on the unit circle (see Figure 1 with n = 7). Roots of monic polynomials with integral coefficients that are not roots of unity can also lie on the unit circle. The quartic polynomial z 4 − 2z 3 − 2z + 1 has two roots on the unit circle (see Figure 2). To explain this, we use the symmetry in the
