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 define ...

In 1980, Gross conjectured a formula for the expected leading term at s=0 of the Deligne-Ribet p-adic L-function associated to a totally even character ϕ of a totally real field F. The conjecture states that after scaling by L(ϕω-1,0), this value is equal ...

We prove that the p-adic L-series of the tensor square of a p-ordinary modular form factors as the product of the symmetric square p-adic L-series of the form and a Kubota–Leopoldt p-adic L-series. This establishes a generalization of a conjecture of Citro ...
