dc.description.abstract We introduce decompositions determined by Galois field and degree of the space of algebraic numbers modulo torsion and the space of algebraic points on an elliptic curve over a number field . These decompositions are orthogonal with respect to the natural inner product associated to the L² Weil height recently introduced by Allcock and Vaaler in the case of algebraic numbers and the inner product naturally associated to the Néron -Tate canonical height on an elliptic curve . Using these decompositions , we then introduce vector space norms associated to the Mahler measure . For algebraic numbers , we formulate L[superscript p] Lehmer conjectures involving lower bounds on these norms and prove that these new conjectures are equivalent to their classical counterparts , specifically , the classical Lehmer conjecture in the p=1 case and the Schinzel -Zassenhaus conjecture in the p=[infinity] case .
