"Stark-type conjectures"


Stark-type conjectures may be seen as a vast generalization of the analytic class number formula in number theory. Roughly speaking, certain analytic objects (special values of L-series) conjecturally give information about arithmetic objects (as the class group of a number field). This talk gives an introduction to some recent developments which take into account the Galois-action of a (in general non-abelian) Galois group.
