### Existence of linear disjointness between an algebraic number field and $p$-cyclotomic field over $\mathbb{Q}$

Suppose $K$ be an algebraic number field and $n$ be an even integer. Is it possible to find atleast one $p$ such that $p\equiv 1( \text{mod}~ n)$ and $\mathbb{Q}(\eta_p)$ is linearly disjoint ...

### Galois cohomology with coefficients in the unit group of a cyclotomic field

While understanding Fermat's last theorem's proof for regular primes, I bumped into a proposition (http://www2.biglobe.ne.jp/~optimist/algebra/fermat2_proof.html#proof10, written in Japanese) stating: ...

### Elliptic units as Euler systems

I’m trying to understand elliptic units in order to work with the Euler systems of the abelian extensions of quadratic imaginary number fields. I’ve looked at few references about the topic, but they ...

### Quadratic extensions of cyclotomic numbers by absolute values of elements

Summary I was wondering whether there is an explicit description of the extension $\mathbb{Q}(\zeta_n, |z|)/\mathbb{Q}$ obtained from a cyclotomic field $\mathbb{Q}(\zeta_n)$ by adjoining any finite ...

### Minimum of a product of polynomial evaluated at primitive roots of unity, given that the value of the polynomial at the same lies on unit circle

This is something that came out of working on a problem: Let $m$ be an odd positive integer and $f \in \mathbb Q[x]$ be a polynomial of degree less than $m$. With $\zeta_m$ denoting a primitive root ...

### Extended cyclotomic criterion for unitary categorification

According to this paper (Corollary 8.54) the Frobenius-Perron dimension (FPdim) of any object $a$ of a fusion category over $\mathbb{C}$ is a cyclotomic integer. Now, FPdim($a$) is the maximal ...

### Real root of the derivative of a prime cyclotomic polynomial

Consider the graph of $y=x^n$ with $n$ odd, and draw a tangent to its negative arc that crosses the graph at $(1,1)$. Equating the slopes gives us $\frac{x^n-1}{x-1}=nx^{n-1}$ at the point of tangency....
### How to find a cyclotomic polynomial of degree d that decompose into d irreducible polynomials in $Z_6$?
More specifically, I need the degree $d$ to be around 1024. I can easily find the cyclotomic polynomial of degree 1024 that satisfies the above requirement in $Z_2$, i.e., $x^{1024}+1$, which is equal ...
