In science:

If ¯u, ¯v do generate the same subgroup of F ∗ /(F ∗ )q , and they are not q powers in F , we say P is a chilly point.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
If 1 ≤ s ≤ q − 1 is such that ¯us ¯v−1 ∈ (F ∗ )q we say that s is the coefficient of this chilly point with respect to π .
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
We are left with studying chilly and cold points.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Furthermore, if all the preimages of P are chilly, then they all have the same coefficient with respect to the corresponding preimage of C1 .
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Clearly, then, it makes sense to say a point P of S is hot, or chilly, or cool, or cold if one and hence all its preimages have the same property.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
It will also be useful to rephrase the condition of being a chilly point with coefficient s with respect to C1 .
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Corollary 3.7. a) Suppose P is a chilly point with coefficient s with respect to C1 .
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
In a), we have just rewritten the definition of chilly and coefficient.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
After repeated blowing up, we can assume there are no chilly loops.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Suppose P is a chilly point which is the locally the intersection of Ci and Cj , and which has coefficient s with respect to Ci .
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Since there are no chilly loops, the last sentence is clear just as in 2.10.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
That is, we consider the coefficient at a chilly point and the consequences for splitting.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Let P be a chilly point and π = 0 and δ = 0 the local equations for the two curves through P along which α ramifies.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
Let {Pj } be the set of nodal points on the ramification locus, and assume we have further blown up so that there are no chilly loops and no cool points.
Cyclic Algebras over $p$-adic curves
If Pj is a chilly point which is locally the intersection of Ci and Cj , and s is the coefficient of α at P with respect to Ci , then s = si′ /si in Z/qZ.
