### Characteristic elements for p-torsion iwasawa modules

Abstract:

Let G be a compact p-adic analytic group with no elements of order p. We provide a formula for the characteristic element (J. Coates, et. al., The GL2 main conjecture for elliptic curves without complex multiplication, preprint) of any finitely generated p-torsion module M over the Iwasawa algebra AG of G in terms of twisted μ-invariants of M, which are defined using the Euler characteristics of M and its twists. A version of the Artin formalism is proved for these characteristic elements. We...
