Abstract: This paper covers many (closely related) topics: the distribution of the 3-Sylow subgroups of imaginary quadratic fields; the possibility of finding 3-ranks greater than 4; some questions concerning ; and the convergence of Euler products and its relation to the extended Riemann hypothesis. Two programs that were used in this investigation are described.
