Let xpk-a be irreducible over Q. The first part of this paper is to explicitly give the decomposition rules for the factorization of p in the ring of integers of Q(a1/pk). As an application of the above we use these results to determine the genus field of Q(a1/n), where xn-a is irreducible over Q and we make no restrictions on a.
