In mathematics, Tate duality or Poitou–Tate duality is a duality theorem for Galois cohomology groups of modules over the Galois group of an algebraic number field or local field, introduced by Tate (1962) and Poitou (1967).

Local Tate duality[edit]

Local Tate duality says there is a perfect pairing of finite groups

where M is a finite group scheme and M′ its dual Hom(M,Gm).
