N2 - Following the analogies between knots and primes, we introduce arithmetic analogues of higher linking matrices for prime numbers by using the arithmetic Milnor numbers. As an application, we describe the Galois module structure of the l-class group of a cyclic extension of ℚ of degree l (l being a prime number) in terms of the arithmetic higher linking matrices. In particular, our formula generalizes the classical formula of Rédei on the 4 and 8 ranks of the 2-class group of a quadratic field.
