Abstract: The padic coefficients and zeros of certain formal power series defined by Iwasawa have been calculated modulo various powers of p. Using these results and Iwasawa's formula for the padic Lfunction of Kubota and Leopoldt, several padic places of the zero of were computed for the irregular primes .
