On the Kolyvagin cup product Academic Article uri icon


  • We dene a new cohomological operation, which we call the Koly- vagin cup product, that is a generalization of the derivative operator intro- duced by Kolyvagin in his work on Euler systems. We show some of the basic properties of this operation. We also dene a higher dimensional derivative in certain cases and a dual operation which we call the Kolyvagin cap product and which generalizes a computation of Rubin.
