A unit in a ring with multipicative identity 1 is a divisor of 1; if the ring is also a normed vector space, then the norm of a unit must be 1.

So is a unit in ..

Conversely, any element of the form where is a unit in , its mutliplicative inverse being :

Hence the units of are .

By the way, there are units other than ±1: for example, .
