By John Coates, R. Sujatha

Written by means of top staff within the box, this short yet stylish booklet offers in complete aspect the best facts of the "main conjecture" for cyclotomic fields. Its motivation stems not just from the inherent fantastic thing about the topic, but in addition from the broader mathematics curiosity of those questions. From the studies: "The textual content is written in a transparent and engaging type, with sufficient clarification assisting the reader orientate in the course of technical details." --ZENTRALBLATT MATH

12) Proof. 10) gives G χ(g)k dλ = × p Z xk d(χ(λ)). ˜ Λ(Z× p) Also, via our identification of with a subset of Λ(Zp ), the integral above on the right has the same value if we integrate over the whole ˜ ˜ of Zp . Now take λ = L(u), so that, by definition, we have χ( ˜ L(u)) = Υ(L(fu )), where we recall that L(fu )(T ) = fu (T )p 1 . 12) is equal to Dk−1 (hu (T ) − ϕ(hu )(T )) T =0 , where hu (T ) = (1 + T ) fu (T ) . 12), and the proof of the proposition is complete. 12). 4 of the previous chapter determines the image of δk for k = 1, · · · , p − 1.

If Y is any subset of R, then we denote by Y its image in Ω under the reduction map. 7. If ∆(W ) = Rψ=1 , then ∆(W ) = Rψ=1 . 4 The Logarithmic Derivative 23 Proof. Assume that the reductions of ∆(W ) and Rψ=1 do coincide, and take any g in Rψ=1 . Hence there exists h1 in W such that ∆(h1 ) = g. This implies that ∆(h1 ) − g = pg2 for some g2 in R, and again we have that ψ(g2 ) = g2 . Repeating this argument, we conclude that there exists h2 in W such that ∆(h2 ) − g2 = pg3 , with g3 in W . Note that since ∆(a) = 0 for all a in Z× p , it can be assumed, by multiplying by an appropriate (p − 1)-th root of unity, that h1 , h2 , · · ·, all have constant term which is congruent to 1 modulo p.

5) above. Of course, the series on the right converges because an tends to zero as n −→ ∞. Since the cn lie in Zp , it is clear that |L(f )|p ≤ f for all f . Hence there exists λ in Λ(Zp ) such that L = Mλ , and we define Υ(g(T )) = λ. It is plain that Υ is an inverse of M. In fact, it can also be shown that M preserves products, although we omit the proof here. 4. We have M(1Zp ) = 1 + T , and thus M : Λ(Zp ) −→ R is the unique isomorphism of topological Zp -algebras which sends the topological generator 1Zp of Zp to (1 + T ).
