Linear independence of Gamma values in positive characteristic Academic Article uri icon


  • We investigate the arithmetic nature of special values of Thakur's function field Gamma function at rational points. Our main result is that all linear dependence relations over the field of algebraic functions are consequences of the Anderson-Deligne-Thakur bracket relations.
