The 4-class ranks of quadratic extensions of certain real quadratic fields. (English) Zbl 0694.12003
Author’s summary: “Let F be a real quadratic extension of \({\mathbb{Q}}\) in which exactly one prime ramifies. Let K be a quadratic extension of F, and let \(R_ K\) denote the 4-class rank of K. We specify how likely it is that \(R_ K=0,1,2,... \). The formulas we obtain are analogous to formulas conjectured by Cohen and Martinet in the prime-to-2 part of the ideal class group of K.”
