Zeros and poles of Artin L-series

  • Richard Foote (a1) and V. Kumar Murty (a2)


Let E/F be a finite normal extension of number fields with Galois group G. For each virtual character χ of G, denote by L(s, χ) = L(s, χ, F) the Artin L-series attached to χ. It is defined for Re (s) > 1 by an Euler product which is absolutely convergent, making it holomorphic in this half plane. Artin's holomorphy conjecture asserts that, if χ is a character, L(s, χ) has a continuation to the entire s-plane, analytic except possibly for-a pole at s = 1 of multiplicity equal to 〈χ, 1〉, where 1 denotes the trivial character. A well-known group-theoretic result of Brauer implies that L(s, χ) has a meromorphic continuation for all s.
