Abstract

Let $p$ be an odd prime. We attach appropriate signed Selmer groups to an elliptic curve $E$, where $E$ is assumed to have semistable reduction at all primes above $p$. We then compare the Iwasawa $\lambda $-invariants of these signed Selmer groups for two congruent elliptic curves over the cyclotomic $\mathbb{Z}_{p} $-extension in the spirit of Greenberg–Vatsal and B. D. Kim. As an application of our comparison formula, we show that if the $p$-parity conjecture is true for one of the congruent elliptic curves, then it is also true for the other. While proving this last result, we also generalize an observation of Hatley on the parity of signed Selmer groups.
