A class–field theoretical calculation

Cristian D. Popescu (2006)

Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux

In this paper, we give the complete characterization of the p –torsion subgroups of certain idèle–class groups associated to characteristic p function fields. As an application, we answer a question which arose in the context of Tan’s approach [6] to an important particular case of a generalization of a conjecture of Gross [4] on special values of L –functions.

A note on free pro- p -extensions of algebraic number fields

Masakazu Yamagishi (1993)

Journal de théorie des nombres de Bordeaux

For an algebraic number field k and a prime p , define the number ρ to be the maximal number d such that there exists a Galois extension of k whose Galois group is a free pro- p -group of rank d . The Leopoldt conjecture implies 1 ρ r 2 + 1 , ( r 2 denotes the number of complex places of k ). Some examples of k and p with ρ = r 2 + 1 have been known so far. In this note, the invariant ρ is studied, and among other things some examples with ρ < r 2 + 1 are given.

A survey of computational class field theory

Henri Cohen (1999)

Journal de théorie des nombres de Bordeaux

We give a survey of computational class field theory. We first explain how to compute ray class groups and discriminants of the corresponding ray class fields. We then explain the three main methods in use for computing an equation for the class fields themselves: Kummer theory, Stark units and complex multiplication. Using these techniques we can construct many new number fields, including fields of very small root discriminant.

Analogues étales de la p -tour des corps de classes

Jilali Assim (2003)

Journal de théorie des nombres de Bordeaux

Nous construisons un analogue «tordu» de la p -tour de corps de classes d’un corps de nombres ( p un nombre premier) et étudions ses liens avec la théorie d’Iwasawa. Le résultat principal donne un critère du type Golod et Shafarevich pour que la tour «tordue» soit infinie.
