Artin's primitive root conjecture for quadratic fields
Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux, Tome 14 (2002) no. 1, pp. 287-324.

Soit α fixé dans un corps quadratrique K. On note S l’ensemble des nombres premiers p pour lesquels α admet un ordre maximal modulo p. Sous G.R.H., on montre que S a une densité. Nous donnons aussi des conditions nécessaires et suffisantes pour que cette densité soit strictement positive.

Fix an element α in a quadratic field K. Define S as the set of rational primes p, for which α has maximal order modulo p. Under the assumption of the generalized Riemann hypothesis, we show that S has a density. Moreover, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the density of S to be positive.
