Bloch and Kato's exponential map: three explicit formulas

  title={Bloch and Kato's exponential map: three explicit formulas},
  author={Laurent Berger},
The purpose of this article is to give formulas for Bloch-Kato's exponential map and its dual for an absolutely crystalline p-adic representation V, in terms of the (phi,Gamma)-module associated to that representation. As a corollary of these computations, we can give a very simple (and slightly improved) description of Perrin-Riou's exponential map (which interpolates Bloch-Kato's exponentials for V(k)). This new description directly implies Perrin-Riou's reciprocity formula.
