Title: Cyclotomic units, values of the Riemann zeta function and p-adic measures

Abstract:  I would explain the connection between the cyclotomic units and the values of complex Riemann zeta function via higher logarithmic derivative maps. We can use Mahler transform to construct a p-adic zeta function.

Note: I consider a series of talks, each "hopefully" self-contained.

Talk 2 : Euler system of cyclotomic units and Iwasawa's main conjecture

Talk 3 : Euler system of Heegner points and Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture
