Resum: The classical regulator R of a number field K is given [F1] by a rapidly convergent series of the form R w = X∞ m=1 amg(m2 /|D|), where w is the number of roots of unity in K, D is the discriminant of K, am counts certain integral ideals in K of absolute norm m, and g : (0, ∞) 7→ R is defined as g(x) := 1 2 r1 4πi Z 2+i∞ 2−i∞ (4r2 π [K:Q]x) −s/2 (2s − 1)Γ` s 2 ´r1 Γ(s) r2 ds, r1 and r2 being, respectively, the number of real and complex places of K. If the unit group of K is infinite, it is known that g(x) tends to −∞ as x → 0 +, and that g(x) is positive and vanishes exponentially fast for large x. Using classical results from the theory of total positivity we prove that g has the simplest possible behavior compatible with these asymptotic data. Namely, g(x) has a unique zero in (0, ∞), and the same holds for each derivative of g. This leads to a new lower bound for the regulator R > w g(1/|D|), which is useful for certain ranges of D.
