Log‐algebraic identities on Drinfeld modules and special L‐values Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2018 London Mathematical Society We formulate and prove a log-algebraicity theorem for arbitrary rank Drinfeld modules defined over the polynomial ring Fq[θ]. This generalizes results of Anderson for the rank 1 case. As an application we show that certain special values of Goss L-functions are linear forms in Drinfeld logarithms and are transcendental.
