Abstract: Let $E$ be an elliptic curve over a number field $F$, and let $F_\infty$ be a Galois extension of $F$ whose Galois group $G$ is a $p$-adic Lie group. The aim of the present paper is to provide some evidence that, in accordance with the main conjectures of Iwasawa theory, there is a close connection between the action of the Selmer group of $E$ over $F_\infty$, and the global root numbers attached to the twists of the complex $L$-function of $E$ by Artin representations of $G$.
