annihilators; class group; circular (cyclotomic) units; compositum of quadratic fields
This paper is devoted to a construction of new annihilators of the ideal class group of a tamely ramified compositum of quadratic fields. These annihilators are produced by a modified Rubin’s machinery. The aim of this modification is to give a stronger annihilation statement for this specific type of fields.
