Local–global principle for reduced norms over function fields of $p$ -adic curves

  • R. Parimala (a1), R. Preeti (a2) and V. Suresh (a3)


Let $K$ be a (non-archimedean) local field and let $F$ be the function field of a curve over $K$ . Let $D$ be a central simple algebra over $F$ of period $n$ and $\unicode[STIX]{x1D706}\in F^{\ast }$ . We show that if $n$ is coprime to the characteristic of the residue field of $K$ and $D\cdot (\unicode[STIX]{x1D706})=0$ in $H^{3}(F,\unicode[STIX]{x1D707}_{n}^{\otimes 2})$ , then $\unicode[STIX]{x1D706}$ is a reduced norm from $D$ . This leads to a Hasse principle for the group $\operatorname{SL}_{1}(D)$ , namely, an element $\unicode[STIX]{x1D706}\in F^{\ast }$ is a reduced norm from $D$ if and only if it is a reduced norm locally at all discrete valuations of $F$ .
