A247688 Absolute discriminants of complex quadratic fields with 3-class group of type (3,3), 3-principalization type (2143), IPAD [(3,9)^4], and Hilbert 3-class field tower of unknown length at least 3. 3
12067, 49924, 54195, 60099, 83395, 86551, 91643, 93067, 96551 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



These fields are characterized either by their 3-principalization type (transfer kernel type, TKT) (2143), G.19, or equivalently by their transfer target type (TTT) [(3,9)^4] (called IPAD by Boston, Bush, Hajir). The latter is used in the MAGMA PROG. The TKT (2143) is a permutation composed of two disjoint transpositions without fixed point.

For all these discriminants, the metabelianization of the 3-tower group is the unbalanced group SmallGroup(729, 57), whence it is completely open whether the tower must terminate at a finite stage or not. Consequently, these discriminants are among the foremost challenges of future research.

12067 has been discovered by Heider and Schmithals.

Already the smallest term 12067 resists all attempts to determine the length of its Hilbert 3-class field tower.
