On the imbedding problem for local fields

  • 20 Accesses


The imbedding problem of local fields is considered for the case where the whole of the group is a p-group having as many generators as the Galois group of the extension and the extension consists of a primitive root of 1 of degree equal to the period of the kernel. It is proved that it is necessary and sufficient for the solvability of this problem that a concordance condition (and even a weaker condition) be satisfied (see [4]).

The author is thankful to A. V. Yakovlev for his valuable advice.

When this article was in press, the author proved that Theorem 1 is valid even without Condition IV. He has also found an example showing that Condition III cannot be discarded.
