Abstract: We define a new cohomological operation, which we call the Kolyvagin cup product, that is a generalization of the derivative operator introduced by Kolyvagin in his work on Euler systems. We show some of the basic properties of this operation. We also define a higher dimensional derivative in certain cases and a dual operation which we call the Kolyvagin cap product and which generalizes a computation of Rubin.
