Let F be an algebraic number field and μ∈F such that xm-μ is irreducible, where m is an integer. Let {Mathematical expression} be a prime ideal in F with {Mathematical expression}. The prime decomposition of {Mathematical expression} in {Mathematical expression} is explicitly obtained in the following cases. Case 1: {Mathematical expression}, (a,m) = 1 (where {Mathematical expression} means {Mathematical expression}, ς ≢ 0 {Mathematical expression}). Case 2:m ≡lt, where l is a prime and l ≢ 0 {Mathematical expression}. Case 3:m ≢ 0 {Mathematical expression} and every prime that divides m also divides pf-1. It is not assumed that the vth roots of unity are in F for any v ≠ 2.
