Explicit formulas for Drinfeld modules and their periods Academic Article uri icon


  • We provide explicit series expansions for the exponential and logarithm functions attached to a rank r Drinfeld module that generalize well-known formulas for the Carlitz exponential and logarithm. Using these results we obtain a procedure and an analytic expression for computing the periods of rank 2 Drinfeld modules and also a criterion for supersingularity. 2013 Elsevier Inc.
