Abstract

Let p be an odd prime. Let k be an algebraic number field and let \tildek be the compositum of all the \mathbbZ_p-extensions of k, so that Gal(\tildek/k) \simeq \mathbbZ_p^d for some finite d. We shall consider fields k with $Gal(k/\mathbbQ) \simeq (\mathbbZ/2\mathbbZ)^n . Building on known results for quadratic fields, we shall show that the Galois group of the maximal abelian unramified pro-p-extension of \tildek is pseudo-null for several such k's, thus confirming a conjecture of Greenberg. Moreover we shall see that pseudo-nullity can be achieved quite early, namely in a \mathbbZ_p^2-extension, and explain the consequences of this on the capitulation of ideals in such extensions.
