    I gave root of unity its own entry (it used to redirect to root), copied over the paragraph on properties of roots of unities in fields, and added a paragraph on the arithmetic geometry description via μ n=Spec([t](t n1))\mu_n = Spec(\mathbb{Z}[t](t^n-1)) and across-pointer with Kummer sequence.

    Did you mean to leave all of that copied stuff in root?

    I’ll let you decide. Whatever seems better.

    It seems easier just to leave it there, but as long as everything links or redirects to the appropriate place, either way seems fine. I think for example that quadratic reciprocity had a link to root, although it was really to the stuff now in root of unity.
