Ihara defined, and began the systematic study of, the Euler-Kronecker constant of a number field. In some cases, these constants arise in the study of periods of Abelian varieties. For abelian number fields, they can be explicitly connected to subtle problems about the distribution of primes. In this talk, we review some known results and describe some joint work with Mariam Mourtada.
