Bloch and Kato's Exponential Map: Three Explicit Formulas

The purpose of this article is to give formulas for Bloch-Kato's exponential map and its dual for an absolutely crystalline $p$-adic representation $V$, in terms of the $(\varphi,\Gamma)$-module associated to $V$. As a corollary of these computations, we can give a very simple and slightly improved description of Perrin-Riou's exponential map, which interpolates Bloch-Kato's exponentials for the twists of $V$. This new description directly implies Perrin-Riou's reciprocity formula.
