### Model theoretic applications to algebra and number theory(Iwasawa Theory)

One of my favorite results in algebraic geometry is a classical result of AX (see http://terrytao.wordpress.com/2009/03/07/infinite-fields-finite-fields-and-the-ax-grothendieck-theorem/) I'll recall ...

### How do we study Iwasawa theory?

What papers should we read to start? What basic knowledge do we need to understand the question? What is this area really about? And what are people researching on it? Thank you!

### Iwasawa main conjectures vs Bloch-Kato conjectures

Let $p$ be a prime, $K$ be a number field, $S$ a finite set of finite places of $K$ containing the set $S_p$ of places above $p$ and the places at infinity, $G:=G_{K,S}$ the Galois group of the ...

### Does the everywhere unramified extension of Q(mu_37) of degree 37 grow into a Z_37-extension?

Let $p=37$. Since $p$ divides the numerator of $B_{32}$, by Ribet's proof of the converse of Herbrand's theorem, we know that the class group of ${\bf Q}(\mu_p)$ has size divisible by $p$. More ...

### Does p-adic $L$- function determine the $L$ function

Let $E_1$ and $E_2$ be two Elliptic curve defined over $\mathbb Q$ . Let $p$ be an fixed given odd prime of $\mathbb Q$ at which both the curves have good ordinary reduction. Moreover p-adic $L$-...

My question is how should one think of p-adic L functions? I know they have been constructed classically by interpolating values of complex L-functions. Recently I have seen people think about them in ...

### Special values of $p$-adic $L$-functions.

This is a very naive question really, and perhaps the answer is well-known. In other words, WARNING: a non-expert writes. My understanding is that nowadays there are conjectures which essentially ...

In Non-vanishing of L-series of modular forms (easy case?) it was answered that for a cuspidal newform $f$ of weight strictly greater than 2, then $L(f,1)$ is non-zero. (Here the $L$-series is ...

### Two-variable p-adic L-functions of elliptic curves

Suppose $K$ is an imaginary quadratic field (with class number 1, for simplicity), $p \ne 2$ a prime split in $K$, and $K_\infty$ the $\mathbb{Z}_p^2$-extension of $K$. If $E / \mathbb{Q}$ is an ...

### Prime Decomposition in Cyclotomic Z_p-extensions

In their classic paper "Class fields of abelian extensions of $\mathbf{Q}$", Mazur and Wiles assert that "in a cyclotomic $\mathbf{Z}_p$-extension only finitely many primes lie above any ...

### Vanishing of certain $\mu$-invariants attached to abelian extensions of imaginary quadratic fields

In Fonctions L p-adiques des corps quadratiques imaginaires et de leurs extensions abéliennes, J. Reine Angew. Math. 358 (1985), 76–91, Roland Gillard shows the following result (I mainly follow the ...

### Iwasawa theory: Do these $\mu$-invariants of a number field coincide?

Let $k$ be a number field and let $k_\infty$ be the cyclotomic $\mathbf{Z}_p$-extension of $k$. Put $\Gamma=G(k_\infty/k)\cong \mathbf{Z}_p$, $\Lambda=\mathbf{Z}_p[[\Gamma]]$. Let $S$ be a finite set ...

### Iwasawa lambda Invariant for CM type fields

In the following I will follow the notations as in Chapter $11$, section $3$ of the book 'Cohomology of number fields' by Neukirch and others. Let $k_{\infty}$ be a $\mathbb{Z}_p$-extension of a ...

### How to compute group homology of Iwasawa algebra

Let $G$ be a $p$-adic Lie group, $H$ a subgroup of $G$. What is $H_1(H,\Lambda(G))$, where $\Lambda(G)$ is the Iwasawa algebra of $G$ over $\mathbb Z_p$? If it simplies the question, we may assume $G$...
The following fact falls under the category of Iwasawa modules. Let $M$ be a torsion free finitely generated module over the non commutative noetherian ring $\Bbb{Z}_p[[G]]$, (where $G$ is a p ...
