Similar Sublattices of Planar Lattices The similar sublattices of a planar lattice can be classified via
its multiplier ring. The latter is the ring of rational integers in
the generic case, and an order in an imaginary quadratic field
otherwise. Several classes of examples are discussed, with special
emphasis on concrete results. In particular, we derive Dirichlet
series generating functions for the number of distinct similar
sublattices of a given index, and relate them to
zeta functions of orders in imaginary quadratic fields.

Computations of Elliptic Units for Real Quadratic Fields Let $K$ be a real quadratic field, and $p$ a rational prime which is
inert in $K$. Let $\alpha$ be a modular unit on $\Gamma_0(N)$. In an
earlier joint article with Henri Darmon, we presented the definition
of an element $u(\alpha, \tau) \in K_p^\times$ attached to $\alpha$
and each $\tau \in K$. We conjectured that the $p$-adic number
$u(\alpha, \tau)$ lies in a specific ring class extension of $K$
depending on $\tau$, and proposed a ``Shimura reciprocity law"
describing the permutation action of Galois on the set of $u(\alpha,
\tau)$. This article provides computational evidence for these
conjectures. We present an efficient algorithm for computing
$u(\alpha, \tau)$, and implement this algorithm with the modular unit
$\alpha(z) = \Delta(z)^2\Delta(4z)/\Delta(2z)^3.$ Using $p = 3, 5, 7,$
and $11$, and all real quadratic fields $K$ with discriminant $D <
500$ such that $2$ splits in $K$ and $K$ contains no unit of negative
norm, we obtain results supporting our conjectures. One of the
theoretical results in this paper is that a certain measure used to
define $u(\alpha, \tau)$ is shown to be $\mathbf{Z}$-valued rather
than only $\mathbf{Z}_p \cap \mathbf{Q}$-valued; this is an
improvement over our previous result and allows for a precise
definition of $u(\alpha, \tau)$, instead of only up to a root of
unity.

$\mathbb{Z}[\sqrt{14}]$ is Euclidean We provide the first unconditional proof that the ring $\mathbb{Z}
[\sqrt{14}]$ is a Euclidean domain. The proof is generalized to
other real quadratic fields and to cyclotomic extensions of
$\mathbb{Q}$. It is proved that if $K$ is a real quadratic field
(modulo the existence of two special primes of $K$) or if $K$ is a
cyclotomic extension of $\mathbb{Q}$ then:
\begin{center}
\emph{%
the ring of integers of $K$ is a Euclidean domain if and only if
it is a principal ideal domain.}
\end{center}
The proof is a modification of the proof of a theorem of Clark and
Murty giving a similar result when $K$ is a totally real extension of
degree at least three. The main changes are a new Motzkin-type lemma
and the addition of the large sieve to the argument. These changes
allow application of a powerful theorem due to Bombieri, Friedlander
and Iwaniec in order to obtain the result in the real quadratic case.
The modification also allows the completion of the classification of
cyclotomic extensions in terms of the Euclidean property.

An Upper Bound on the Least Inert Prime in a Real Quadratic Field It is shown by a combination of analytic and computational
techniques that for any positive fundamental discriminant $D >
3705$, there is always at least one prime $p < \sqrt{D}/2$ such
that the Kronecker symbol $\left(D/p\right) = -1$.
