In the 1980’s Tate stated the Brumer–Stark conjecture which, for a totally real field $F$ with prime ideal $\mathfrak{p}$, conjectures the existence of a $\mathfrak{p}$-unit called the Gross–Stark unit. This unit has $\mathfrak{P}$ order equal to the value of a partial zeta function at 0, for a prime $\mathfrak{P}$ above $\mathfrak{p}$. In 2008 and 2018 Dasgupta and Dasgupta–Spieß, conjectured formulas for this unit. During this talk I shall explain Tate’s conjecture and then the ideas for the constructions of these formulas. I will finish by explaining the results I have obtained from comparing these formulas.
