This quantity gains the result of the authors' investigations at the improvement and alertness of numerical-analytic tools for traditional nonlinear boundary worth difficulties (BVPs). The tools into account provide a chance to resolve the 2 vital difficulties of the BVP idea, specifically, to set up lifestyles theorems and to construct approximation suggestions

Iwasawa Theory Elliptic Curves with Complex Multiplication: P-Adic L Functions

Within the final fifteen years the Iwasawa concept has been utilized with awesome good fortune to elliptic curves with complicated multiplication. a transparent but normal exposition of this concept is gifted during this book.

Following a bankruptcy on formal teams and native devices, the p-adic L services of Manin-Vishik and Katz are built and studied. within the 3rd bankruptcy their relation to type box thought is mentioned, and the purposes to the conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer are handled in bankruptcy four. complete proofs of 2 theorems of Coates-Wiles and of Greenberg also are awarded during this bankruptcy which can, additionally, be used as an advent to the more moderen paintings of Rubin.

The booklet is essentially self-contained and assumes familiarity merely with basic fabric from algebraic quantity idea and the speculation of elliptic curves. a few effects are new and others are provided with new proofs.

We often call s the spectral parameter. Note that Wl (P, n, s) = Wl (P, n, −s). In the literature one often meets the parametrization λ = s(1−s). In comparing results one then needs to make the translation s → s + 12 . 3. The choice λ = s(1 − s) has the advantage of placing the critical line at Re s = 12 , which reminds us of the Riemann zeta function. 7. 2 Diﬀerential equation. 1 is determined by a function f of one variable: F (gP p(z)k(θ)) if P ∈ X ∞ = e2πinx f (y)eilθ if P ∈ PY . 3. This second order linear diﬀerential operator lP,n has real analytic coeﬃcients, so any function f corresponding to an element of Wl (P, n, s) is a real analytic function on (0, ∞).

Product of the subgroups A = { a(y) : y > 0 } = R>0 and N ∼ vzmn(x)x ∈ R = R. This leaves only the deﬁnition of the multiplication of k(θ) ˜ I invite the and p(z). The deﬁnition above lifts the product of p(z) and k(θ) to G. ˜ and that g → gˆ gives a surjective reader to check that we now have a Lie group G, ˜ → G, with kernel central in G. ˜ homomorphism G ˜ It is generated by ζ = k(π). We denote The group Z˜ is the center of G. ˜ Z˜ ∼ ¯ If we use H as a model of hyperbolic plane the quotient G/ = G/{±Id} by G.

4 Iwasawa coordinates. The isomorphism of analytic varieties G ˜ = N ˜ A˜K. ˜ It leads to the Iwasawa corresponds to the Iwasawa decomposition G ˜ coordinates on G: p(z)k(θ) → (x, y, θ). In these coordinates W E = ∂θ ± = e±2iθ (±2iy∂x + 2y∂y ∓ i∂θ ) ω = −y 2 ∂x2 − y 2 ∂y2 + y∂x ∂θ . 5 Polar coordinates. The polar decomposition G ˜ ˜ coordinates on G K: k(η)a(tu )k(ψ) → (u, η, ψ) with η, ψ ∈ R, η + ψ mod πZ, u ∈ (0, ∞) and tu = 1 + 2u + 2 u2 + u > 1, u= (tu − 1)2 > 0. 4tu 30 Chapter 2 Universal covering group We have W = ∂ψ .
