The classical lattice A*n, whose Voronoi cells tile Euclidean n-space by permutohedra, can be given the generalized balance ternary ring structure GBTn in a natural way as a quotient ring of Z[x]. The ring GBTn can also be considered as the set of all finite sequences s0, with si ∈ GBTn{plus 45 degree rule}αGBTn for all i, where α is an appropriately chosen element in GBTn. The extended generalized balance ternary (EGBTn) ring consists of all such infinite sequences. A primary goal of this paper is to prove that if 2n+1-1 and n+1 are relatively prime, then EGBTn is isomorphic as a ring to the (2n+1-1)-adic integers. © 1994.
