Given a number field $K$, a finite abelian group $G$ and finitely many elements $\alpha_1,\ldots,\alpha_t\in K$, we construct abelian extensions $L/K$ with Galois group $G$ that realise all of the elements $\alpha_1,\ldots,\alpha_t$ as norms of elements in $L$. In particular, this shows existence of such extensions for any given parameters. Our approach relies on class field theory and a recent formulation of Tate's characterisation of the Hasse norm principle, a local-global principle for… Expand

Number fields with prescribed norms.
We study the distribution of extensions of a number field $k$ with fixed abelian Galois group $G$, from which a given finite set of elements of $k$ are norms. In particular, we show the existence ofExpand
The Hasse norm principle for abelian extensions
Abstract:We study the distribution of abelian extensions of bounded discriminant of a number field $k$ which fail the Hasse norm principle. For example, we classify those finite abelian groups $G$Expand
A survey of computational class field theory
We give a survey of computational class field theory. We first explain how to compute ray class groups and discriminants of the corresponding ray class fields. We then explain the three main methodsExpand

An explicit bound for the least prime ideal in the Chebotarev density theorem
We prove an explicit version of Weiss' bound on the least norm of a prime ideal in the Chebotarev density theorem, which is itself a significant improvement on the work of Lagarias, Montgomery, andExpand

Based on an explicit representation of the Artin map for Kummer extensions, a method to compute arbitrary class fields in the case where the field contains sufficiently many roots of unity is presented. Expand
