The purpose of this paper is to characterize by means of simple quadratic forms the set of rational primes that are decomposed completely in a non-abelian central extension which is abelian over a quadratic field. More precisely, let L = Q be a bicyclic biquadratic field, and let K = Q. Denote by the ray class field mod m of K in narrow sense for a large rational integer m. Let be the maximal abelian extension over Q contained in and be the maximal extension contained in such that Gal(/L) is contained in the center of Gal(/Q). Then we shall show in Theorem 2.1 that any rational prime p not dividing d1d2m is decomposed completely in /Q if and only if p is representable by rational integers x and y such that x ≡ 1 and y ≡ 0 mod m as follows
where a, b, c are rational integers such that b2 − 4ac is equal to the discriminant of K and (a) is a norm of a representative of the ray class group of K mod m.
Moreover is decomposed completely in if and only if .
We defined a prime decomposition symbol [d1 d2, p] in a previous paper , and characterized in  the set of rational primes p which are decomposed completely in a non-abelian central extension which is of degree 8 in substance. The explicit value of the symbol was determined by using a solution of certain ternary quadratic diophantine equation. The solution corresponds to a square root of an ideal class of the principal genus of a quadratic field. This is translated to a problem in classes of integral quadratic forms, namely to find a form whose duplication is a given one contained in a principal genus. An explicit method to find the form is given by Gauss in [5, Art. 286], which is due to his ternary form reduction.
Let K be a finite Galois extension of an algebraic number field k with G = Gal (K/k), and M be a Galois extension of k containing K. We denote by resp. the genus field resp. the central class field of K with respect to M/k. By definition, the field is the composite of K and the maximal abelian extension over k contained in M. The field is the maximal Galois extension of k contained in M satisfying the condition that the Galois group over K is contained in the center of that over k. Then it is well known that Gal is isomorphic to a factor group of the Schur multiplicator H-3(G, Z), and is isomorphic to H-3(G, Z) when M is sufficiently large. In this case we call M abundant for K/k (See Heider [3, § 4] and Miyake [6, Theorem 5]).
In a previous paper  we had some criteria for the prime decomposition in certain non-abelian extensions over the rational number field Q, and as its special case we had a reciprocity of the biquadratic residue symbol. The reciprocity was obtained by using a descent method of the prime decomposition for a central extension over Q which is abelian over a biquadratic field In the present paper we study on the case over a biquadratic field in general. We define a symbol [d1, d2, p] which expresses the decomposition law of a rational prime p in a central extension mentioned above.
Let K be a Galois extension of an algebraic number field k of finite degree with Galois group g, be a congruent ideal class group of K, and M be the class field over K corresponding to . Assume that M is normal over k. Then g acts on as a group of automorphisms. Donote by lg the augmentation ideal of the group ring Zg over the ring of integers Z.
Let K be a Galois extension of an algebraic number field k of finite degree with Galois group g. Then g acts on a congruent ideal class group of K as a group of automorphisms, when the class field M over K corresponding to is normal over K. Let Ig be the augmentation ideal of the group ring Zg over the ring of integers Z, namely Ig be the ideal of Zg generated by σ − 1, σ running over all elements of g. Then is the group of all elements aσ-1 where a and σ belong to and g respectively.

K* die gröBten, unverzweigten Erweiterungskörper von K, die beziehungsweise die folgenden Eigenschaften besitzen: die galoische Gruppe abelsch; die galoische Gruppe ist im Zentrum von enthalten; K* ist das Kompositum von K und einem über k abelschen Erweiterungskörper.
By a global field we mean a field which is either an algebraic number field, or an algebraic function field in one variable over a finite constant field. The purpose of the present note is to show that the Galois cohomology group of the ring of integers of a global field is isomorphic to that of the ring of integers of its adele ring and is reduced to asking for that of the ring of local integers.
Let k be an algebraic number field and K be its normal extension of finite degree. Then the genus field K* of K over k is defined as the maximal unramified extension of K which is obtained from K by composing an abelian extension over k2). We call the degree (K*: K) the genus number of K over k.
Let k be an algebraic number field of finite degree, K be its normal extension of degree n, and ŝ be the set of those primes of K which have degree 1. Using this set s instead of the set of all primes of K, we define an s-restricted idèle of K by the same way as ordinary idèles. It is known by Bauer that the normal extension of an algebraic number field is determined by the set of all primes of the ground field which are decomposed completely in the extension field. This suggests that if we treat abelian extensions over K which are normal over k, the class field theory is expressed by means of the ŝ-restricted idèles (theorem 2). When K = k, ŝ is the set of all primes of K, and we have the ordinary class field theory.
Let k be an algebraic number field of finite degree, A the maximal abelian extension over k, and M a meta-abelian field over h of finite degree, that is, M/k be a normal extension over k of finite degree with an abelian group as commutator group of its Galois group.
Let k be an algebraic number field of finite degree, and l a rational prime (including 2); k and l being fixed throughout this paper. For any power ln of l, denote by ζn an arbitrarily fixed primitive ln-th root of unity, and put kn = k(ζn). Let r be the maximal rational integer such that ζr∈k i.e. kr = k and kr+1≠k.
