Stickelberger Relation

Let $P$ be a Prime Ideal in $D_m$ not containing $m$. Then

(\Phi(P))=P^{\sum t\sigma_t^{-1}},

where the sum is over all $1\leq t<m$ which are Relatively Prime to $m$. Here $D_m$ is the Ring of integers in $\Bbb{Q}(\zeta_m)$, $\Phi(P)=g(P)^m$, and other quantities are defined by Ireland and Rosen (1990).
