On twists of modules over noncommutative Iwasawa algebras

Somnath Jha, Tadashi Ochiai and Gergely Zábrádi

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 3, 685–694

It is well known that, for any finitely generated torsion module M over the Iwasawa algebra p[[Γ]], where Γ is isomorphic to p, there exists a continuous p-adic character ρ of Γ such that, for every open subgroup U of Γ, the group of U-coinvariants M(ρ)U is finite; here M(ρ) denotes the twist of M by ρ. This twisting lemma was already used to study various arithmetic properties of Selmer groups and Galois cohomologies over a cyclotomic tower by Greenberg and Perrin-Riou. We prove a noncommutative generalization of this twisting lemma, replacing torsion modules over p[[Γ]] by certain torsion modules over p[[G]] with more general p-adic Lie group G. In a forthcoming article, this noncommutative twisting lemma will be used to prove the functional equation of Selmer groups of general p-adic representations over certain p-adic Lie extensions.
