Special L-values and shtuka functions for Drinfeld modules on elliptic curves Academic Article uri icon


  • 2018, SpringerNature. We make a detailed account of sign-normalized rank1 Drinfeld A-modules, forA the coordinate ring of an elliptic curve over a finite field, in order to provide a parallel theory to the Carlitz module for Fq[t]. Using precise formulas for the shtuka function for A, we obtain a product formula for the fundamental period of the Drinfeld module. Using the shtuka function we find identities for deformations of reciprocal sums and as a result prove special value formulas for Pellarin L-series in terms of an AndersonThakur function. We also give a new proof of a log-algebraicity theorem of Anderson.
