The Euler-Kronecker constant of a number field

Colloquium presented by Kumar Murty

Ihara has defined an invariant of a number field that for the rational numbers is Euler's constant and for imaginary quadratic fields is related to Kronecker's limit formula. In this talk, we will discuss various properties of this invariant and its relation to zeros of L-functions.
