Galois module structure of local unit groups

Romyar Sharifi

Vol. 7 (2013), No. 1, 157–191
Abstract

We study the groups Ui in the unit filtration of a finite abelian extension K of p for an odd prime p. We determine explicit generators of the Ui as modules over the p-group ring of Gal(Kp). We work in eigenspaces for powers of the Teichmüller character, first at the level of the field of norms for the extension of K by p-power roots of unity and then at the level of K.
