Abstract: Let F be a totally real field and χ an abelian totally odd character of F. In 1988, Gross stated a padic analogue of Stark's conjecture that relates the value of the derivative of the padic Lfunction associated to χ and the padic logarithm of a punit in the extension of F cut out by χ. In this paper we prove Gross's conjecture when F is a real quadratic field and χ is a narrow ring class character. The main result also applies to general totally real fields for which Leopoldt's conjecture holds, assuming that either there are at least two primes above p in F, or that a certain condition relating the Linvariants of χ and χ 1 holds. This condition on Linvariants is always satisfied when χ is quadratic.
