This paper introduces explicit conditions for some natural family
of polynomials to define Pisot or Salem numbers, and reviews related
topics as well as their references.

A Pisot (resp. Salem) number is an algebraic integer > 1 whose Galois
conjugates other than have moduli less than 1. (resp. less than or equal to
1 and at least one conjugate lies on the unit circle.) These algebraic numbers
unexpectedly or exceptionally appeared in number of quite different branches
of mathematics. A comprehensive survey is found in the book . However,
related areas are still steadily expanding. To give convenient pointers to the
reader, we only mention some of such areas with surveys/recent papers :
· Number theory (Uniform distribution , -expansion [8, 1], Lehmer's
problem [12, 45]),
