Bounded generation of $\mathrm{SL}_2$ over rings of $S$-integers with infinitely many units

Aleksander V. Morgan, Andrei S. Rapinchuk and Balasubramanian Sury

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 8, 1949–1974

Let O be the ring of S-integers in a number field k. We prove that if the group of units O× is infinite then every matrix in Γ = SL2(O) is a product of at most 9 elementary matrices. This essentially completes a long line of research in this direction. As a consequence, we obtain a new proof of the fact that Γ is boundedly generated as an abstract group that uses only standard results from algebraic number theory.
