Drinfeld modules and A-motives are the function field analogs of elliptic curves and abelian varieties. For both Drinfeld modules and A-motives, one can construct their l-adic Galois representations and ask whether the images are open. For Drinfeld modules, this question has been answered by Richard Pink and his co-authors; however, this question has not been addressed for A-motives. Here, we clarify

Let 𝒮 be a finite cyclic semigroup written additively. An element e of 𝒮 is said to be idempotent if e+e=e. A sequence T over 𝒮 is called idempotent-sum-free provided that no idempotent of 𝒮 can be represented as a sum of one or more terms from T. We prove that an idempotent-sum-free sequence over 𝒮 of length over approximately a half of the size of 𝒮 is well structured. This result generalizes

We establish the triple integral evaluation ∫1∞∫01∫01dzdydxx(x+y)(x+y+z)=524ζ(3), as well as the equivalent polylogarithmic double sum ∑k=1∞∑j=k∞(−1)k−1k21j2j=1324ζ(3). This double sum is related to, but less approachable than, similar sums studied by Ramanujan. It is also reminiscent of Euler’s formula ζ(2,1)=ζ(3), which is the simplest instance of duality of multiple polylogarithms. We review this

We formulate and prove an analogue of the non-commutative Iwasawa Main Conjecture for ℓ-adic representations of the Galois group of a function field of characteristic p. We also prove a functional equation for the resulting non-commutative L-functions. As corollaries, we obtain non-commutative generalizations of the main conjecture for Picard-1-motives of Greither and Popescu and a main conjecture

We consider equations of the form Fn=P(x), where P is a polynomial with integral coefficients and Fn is the nth Fibonacci number that is, F0=0,F1=1 and Fn=Fn−1+Fn−2 for n>1. In particular, for each k∈ℕ+, we prove the existence of a polynomial Fk∈ℤ[x] of degree 2k−1 such that the Diophantine equation Fk(x)=Fm has infinitely many solutions in positive integers (x,m). Moreover, we present results of our
