Galois module structure of local unit groups

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the groups Ui in the unit filtration of a finite abelian extension K of ℚp for an odd prime p. We determine explicit generators of the Ui as modules over the ℤp-group ring of Gal(K/ℚp). 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.
