Abstract: We prove a functional equation for two projective systems of finite abelian $ p$-groups, $ \{\mathfrak{a}_n\}$ and $ \{\mathfrak{b}_n\}$, endowed with an action of $ \mathbb{Z}_p^d$ such that $ \mathfrak{a}_n$ can be identified with the Pontryagin dual of $ \mathfrak{b}_n$ for all $ n$.

Let $ K$ be a global field. Let $ L$ be a $ \mathbb{Z}_p^d$-extension of $ K$ ($ d\geq 1$), unramified outside a finite set of places. Let $ A$ be an abelian variety over $ K$. We prove an algebraic functional equation for the Pontryagin dual of the Selmer group of $ A$.
