We consider b-additive functions f where b is an algebraic integer over ℤ. In particular, let p be a polynomial, then we show that the asymptotic distribution of f(⌊ p(z)⌋), where ⌊⋅⌋ denotes the integer part with respect to basis b, when z runs through the elements of the ring ℤ[b] is the normal law. This is a generalization of results of Bassily and Kátai (for the integer case) and of Gittenberger and Thuswaldner (for the Gaussian integers).
