  title={Comparing local constants of ordinary elliptic curves in dihedral extensions},
  author={Sunil Chetty},
We establish, for a substantial class of elliptic curves, that the arithmetic local constants introduced by Mazur and Rubin agree with quotients of analytic root numbers.

Compatibility of arithmetic and algebraic local constants, II: the tame abelian potentially Barsotti–Tate case
We prove the compatibility of arithmetic local constants of Mazur and Rubin with the usual local constants for pairs of congruent self-dual Galois representations that become Barsotti–Tate over a


The local root number of elliptic curves with wild ramification
Abstract. Let E be an elliptic curve over a number field F. The root number is conjecturally the sign of the functional equation of L-function of E/F. It is defined as the product of local signs over
Finding Large Selmer Rank via an Arithmetic Theory of Local Constants
We obtain lower bounds for Selmer ranks of elliptic curves over dihedral extensions of number fields. Suppose K/k is a quadratic extension of number fields, E is an elliptic curve defined over k, and
Regulator constants and the parity conjecture
AbstractThe p-parity conjecture for twists of elliptic curves relates multiplicities of Artin representations in p∞-Selmer groups to root numbers. In this paper we prove this conjecture for a class
Iwasawa Theory, projective modules, and modular representations
This paper shows that properties of projective modules over a group ring Zp[∆], where ∆ is a finite Galois group, can be used to study the behavior of certain invariants which occur naturally in
Twisting Commutative Algebraic Groups
Abstract If V is a commutative algebraic group over a field k , O is a commutative ring that acts on V , and I is a finitely generated free O -module with a right action of the absolute Galois group
On the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer quotients modulo squares
Let A be an abelian variety over a number field K. An identity between the L-functions L(A/K i , s) for extensions K i of K induces a conjectural relation between the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer quotients.

Good reduction of abelian varieties
We study the relation between abelian varieties having good reduction at a discrete valuation and the action of the inertia group on torsion points of the abelian variety. For onedimensional abelian
Galois theory, elliptic curves, and root numbers
The inverse problem of Galois theory asks whether an arbitrary finite group G can be realized as Gal(K/Q) for some Galois extension K of Q. When such a realization has been given for a particular G
Introduction to Iwasawa Theory
Iwasawa theory grew out of Kenkichi Iwasawa’s efforts (1950s – 1970s) to transfer to characteristic 0 (number fields) the characteristic p (function field) techniques which led A. Weil (1940s) to his
