dc.description.abstractIf we adjoin the cube root of a cube free rational integer <i>m</i> to the rational numbers we construct a cubic field. If we adjoin the cube roots of distinct cube free rational integers <i>m</i> and <i>n</i> to the rational numbers we construct a bicubic field. The number theoretic invariants for the cubic fields and their normal closures are well known. Some work has been done on the units, classnumbers and other invariants of the bicubic fields and their normal closures by Parry but no method is available for calculating those invariants. This dissertation provides an algorithm for calculating the number theoretic invariants of the bicubic fields and their normal closure. Among these invariants are the discriminant, an integral basis, a set of fundamental units, the class number and the rank of the 3-class group.en
