In this paper we consider representations of algebraic integers of a number field as linear combinations of units with coefficients coming from a fixed small set, and as sums of elements having small norms in absolute value. These theorems can be viewed as results concerning a generalization of the so-called unit sum number problem, as well. Beside these, extending previous related results we give an upper bound for the length of arithmetic progressions of t-term sums of algebraic integers having small norms in absolute value.
