Nigel Boston (UW–Madison)
Title: Non-abelian Cohen–Lenstra heuristics

Abstract: In 1983, Cohen and Lenstra observed that the frequency with which a given abelian p-group A (p odd) arises as the p-class group of an imaginary quadratic field K is apparently proportional to 1/|Aut(A)|. The group A is isomorphic to the Galois group of the maximal unramified abelian p-extension of K. In work with Michael Bush and Farshid Hajir, I generalized this to non-abelian unramified p-extensions of imaginary quadratic fields. I shall recall all the above and describe a further generalization to non-abelian unramified p-extensions of H-extensions of Q, for any p, H, where p does not divide the order of H.
