The l-th Power Reciprocity Law in Regular Cyclotomic Fields

  • David Hilbert


The theory of Kummer fields which we have developed thus far gives us the resources required for the proof of certain fundamental laws concerning l-th power residues in regular cyclotomic fields which correspond to the quadratic reciprocity law in the domain of rational numbers and include as a special case the Eisenstein reciprocity law (Theorem 140) between an arbitrary number in k(ζ) and a rational number which we developed in Sect. 115. In order to be able to state these laws for l-th power residues in their simplest form we generalise the symbol {μ/m} defined in Sect. 113 and Sect. 127 as follows.
