Title:A reciprocity law for Drinfeld modules
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Mihran Papikian, Penn State University
Abstract:
First, I will explain what is a "reciprocity law". Then I will describe such law arising from Drinfeld modules. Finally, I will apply this law to derive a criterion for the splitting modulo primes of a class of non-solvable polynomials over $\mathbb{F}_q(T)$ that was studied by Abhyankar. (This is a joint work with Alina Cojocaru.)
