On the characteristic polynomial of the gross regulator matrix
We present a conjectural formula for the principal minors and the characteristic polynomial of Gross’s regulator matrix associated to a totally odd character of a totally real field. The formula is given in terms of the Eisenstein cocycle, which was defined and studied earlier by the authors and collaborators. For the determinant of the regulator matrix, our conjecture follows from recent work of Kakde, Ventullo, and the first author. For the diagonal entries, our conjecture overlaps with the conjectural formula presented in our prior work. The intermediate cases are new and provide a refinement of the Gross-Stark conjecture.
