The aim of the thesis is to study the arithmetics of number fields, in particular the structure of totally positive additively indecomposable integers. In the case of real quadratic fields, these can be nicely characterized in terms of periodic continued fractions, which then has applications to the study of universal quadratic forms. However, the classical theory no longer works for higher degree number fields, so the student will investigate and develop other methods based on generalized continued fractions or numeration systems, e.g., the Jacobi-Perron algorithm or continued fractions with algebraic coefficients.
