Abstract

We discuss algebraic Γ-monomials of Deligne. Deligne used the theory of Hodge Cycles to show that algebraic Γ-monomials generate Kummer extensions of certain cyclotomic fields. Das, using a double complex of Anderson and Deligne's results, showed that certain powers of algebraic Γ-monomials and certain square roots of sine monomials generate abelian extensions of ℚ. Das also gave one example of a nonabelian double covering of a cyclotomic field generated by the square root of a sine monomial. In this note, we will produce infinitely many examples of non-abelian double coverings of cyclotomic fields of Das type. The construction of the examples depends in an interesting way on a lemma of Gauss figuring in an elementary proof of quadratic reciprocity.
