Algebraic independence of periods and logarithms of Drinfeld modules (with an appendix by Brian Conrad) Academic Article uri icon


  • Let rho be a Drinfeld A-module with generic characteristic defined over an algebraic function field. We prove that all of the algebraic relations among periods, quasi-periods, and logarithms of algebraic points on rho are those coming from linear relations induced by endomorphisms of rho.
