Résumé - Abstract

In this report we study the arithmetic of Rikuna’s generic polynomial for the cyclic group of order $n$ and obtain a generalized Kummer theory. It is useful under the condition that $\zeta \notin k$ and $\omega \in k$ where $\zeta $ is a primitive $n$-th root of unity and $\omega =\zeta +\zeta ^{-1}$. In particular, this result with $\zeta \in k$ implies the classical Kummer theory. We also present a method for calculating not only the conductor but also the Artin symbols of the cyclic extension which is defined by the Rikuna polynomial.
