Abstract: Let $ A$ be an abelian variety over a nonarchimedean local field of definition $ K$ and let $ W(A)$ be the root number of $ A$. Let $ F$ be a Galois extension of $ K$ over which $ A$ has semistable reduction, allowing $ F = K$. We analyze $ W(A)$ in terms of contributions from the toric and abelian variety components of the closed fibers of the Néron models of $ A$ over the ring of integers of $ K$ and of $ F$. In particular, our results can be used to calculate $ W(A)$ in two main instances: first, for abelian varieties with additive reduction over $ K$ and totally toroidal reduction over $ F$, provided that the residue characteristic of $ K$ is odd; second, for the Jacobian $ A = J(C)$ of a stable curve $ C$ over $ K$.
