Anosov diffeomorphisms on nilmanifolds play an important and beautiful role in dynamics as the notion represents the most perfect kind of global hyperbolic behaviour, giving examples of structurally stable dynamical systems. Anosov diffeomorphisms on nilmanifolds give rise to special type of algebraic units in number fields. We will explore the properties of these algebraic units to understand the structure of the Lie algebra of the simply connected cover of the nilmanifolds admitting Anosov diffeomorphism.
