Manfred Kolster - Higher relative class number formulas



MANFRED KOLSTER, Department of Mathematics, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario  L8S 4K1, Canada
Higher relative class number formulas


Let F/F+ be a CM extension of number fields, and let $\chi$denote the non-trivial character of the Galois group of F/F+. The classical relative class number formula gives the following relation between the value of the L-function of $\chi$ at 0 and the relative class number h-:

\begin{displaymath}L_{F^+}(\chi,0) = \frac{2^{r_1}}{Q} \cdot \frac{h^-}{w(F)},
\end{displaymath}

where $r_1 = [F^+:\bbd Q]$, Q is the so-called Q-index, and w(F)is the number of roots of unity in F. The purpose of the talk is to describe analogs of this formula relating the values $L_{F^+}(\chi,
1-n)$ for $n \geq 3$ an odd integer to the orders of relative motivic cohomology groups and K-groups.
