The Iwasawa invariant μ for quadratic fields

Frank E., III Gerth

Vol. 80 (1979), No. 1, 131–136
Abstract

We let k0 be a quadratic extension field of the rational numbers, and we let l be a rational prime number. In this paper we show that there exists a constant c (depending on k0 and l) such that the Iwasawa invariant μ(K∕k0) c for all Zl-extensions K of k0. In certain cases we give explicit values for c.
