Background and Aims

We investigate the Hilbert p-class field tower F(p,∞,K) of algebraic number fields K
within the frame of our International Scientific Research Project with title
Towers of p-class fields over algebraic number fields,
supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF): P 26008-N25 .

  1. The metabelianization G/G'' of the Galois group G of the p-class tower,
    describes the lowest two stages of the tower,
    K < F(p,1,K) < F(p,2,K).
  2. Recently, we pushed forward beyond the two-stage towers into the strange realm of
    non-metabelian p-groups with derived length 3,
    K < F(p,1,K) < F(p,2,K) < F(p,3,K),
    thereby advancing Austrian Science
    to the Forefront of International Research.
