Abstract

Let a(k, n) be the k-th coefﬁcient of the n-th cyclotomic polynomials. In 1987, J. Suzuki proved that {a(k, n) | n, k ∈ N} = Z.
In this paper, we improve this result and prove that for any prime p and any integer l ≥ 1, we have
{a(k, pl n) | n, k ∈ N} = Z.

Keywords: Cyclotomic polynomials; Dirichlet’s theorem; Arithmetic progressions

1. Introduction

The n-th cyclotomic polynomial is deﬁned by
Y j
Φn(x) = (x − ζn ),
1≤ j≤n
( j, n)=1

where ζn is an n-th primitive roots of unity. We know that Φn(x) is an integer polynomial and an irreducible
