Abstract The purpose of these notes is to describe the notion of an Euler system, a collection of compatible cohomology classes arising from a tower of fields that can be used to bound the size of Selmer groups. There are applications to the study of the ideal class group, Iwasawa’s main conjecture, Mordell-Weil group of an elliptic curve, X (the Safarevich-Tate group), Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, and a study of the p-adic main conjecture for elliptic curves. For a reference, consult [R 1], the bibliography there, and also [R 2]. Our group will be giving four hour lectures, as the schedule indicates, as follows: 1. Introduction to Euler Systems and Kolyvagin Systems. (B.M.) 2. L-functions and applications of Euler systems to ideal class groups (ascending cyclotomic towers over Q). (T.W.) 3. Student presentation: The “Heegner point ” Euler System and applications to the Selmer groups of elliptic curves (ascending anti-cyclotomic towers over quadratic
