Note on a congruence for p-adic L-functions. (English) Zbl 0565.12008

For a prime p, let \(\psi\) be a Dirichlet character of p-power order. In this paper, G. Gras’ congruence [Sémin. Delange-Pisot-Poitou, 20e Année 1978/79, Théorie des nombres, Fasc. 2, Exp. 22 (1980; Zbl 0427.12014)] between the power series f(X,\(\chi)\) and f(X,\(\chi\) \(\psi)\) representing p-adic L-functions is proved by using Iwasawa’s construction of these functions. An application of this congruence, the so-called Riemann-Hurwitz genus formula for the \(\lambda\) \({}^-\)-invariants of imaginary abelian fields, is briefly discussed.
