On Iwasawa theory, zeta elements for $\mathbb{G}_{m}$, and the equivariant Tamagawa number conjecture

David Burns, Masato Kurihara and Takamichi Sano

Vol. 11 (2017), No. 7, 1527–1571
Abstract

We develop an explicit “higher-rank” Iwasawa theory for zeta elements associated to the multiplicative group over abelian extensions of number fields. We show this theory leads to a concrete new strategy for proving special cases of the equivariant Tamagawa number conjecture and, as a first application of this approach, we prove new cases of the conjecture over natural families of abelian CM-extensions of totally real fields for which the relevant p-adic L-functions possess trivial zeroes.
