Abstract: Let p be a prime, k a finite extension of the p-adic field $ {\mathbb{Q}_p}$, and G a finite p-group. Let $ v(k,G)$ denote the number of non-isomorphic Galois extensions of k whose Galois groups are isomorphic to G. When k does not contain a primitive p-th root of unity, I. R. Šafarevič gave an explicit formula for $ v(k,G)$. In this note, we treat the case when k contains a primitive p-th root of unity. After giving a general formula for $ v(k,G)$ (Theorem 1), we calculate $ v(k,G)$ explicitly for some special p-groups (Theorem 2.2).
