Abstract

In this thesis we generalize to higher dimensional local fields the explicit reciprocity laws of Kolyvagin for the Kummer pairing associated to a formal group. The formulas obtained describe the values of the pairing in terms of multidimensional p-adic differentiation, the logarithm of the formal group, the generalized trace and the norm on Milnor K-groups.
