Abstract: We study the relation between zeta-functions and Iwasawa modules. We prove that the Iwasawa modules $X^{-}_{k({\zeta }_{p})}$ for almost all $p$ determine the zeta function ${\zeta }_{k}$ when $k$ is a totally real field. Conversely, we prove that the $\lambda $-part of the Iwasawa module $X_{k}$ is determined by its zeta-function ${\zeta }_{k}$ up to pseudo-isomorphism for any number field $k.$ Moreover, we prove that arithmetically equivalent CM fields have also the same ${\mu }^{-}$-invariant.
