This is a well known theorem. In perticular, the mth quadratic field, for m squarefree, is contained in the dth cyclotomic field, where , the discriminant of the ring of algebraic integers in the mth quadratic field. Now my question is : is the dth cyclotomic field the cyclotomic field with least d containing the mth quadratic field?
