Abstract

In this paper, we consider all metacyclic groups of the type 〈a,b | an - 1, b2 = 1, ba = aib〉 and give a concrete description of their rational group algebras. As a consequence we obtain, in a natural way, units which generate a subgroup of finite index in the full unit group, for almost all such groups.
