Some sums over irreducible polynomials

David E. Speyer

Vol. 11 (2017), No. 5, 1231–1241
Abstract

We prove a number of conjectures due to Dinesh Thakur concerning sums of the form Ph(P) where the sum is over monic irreducible polynomials P in Fq[T], the function h is a rational function and the sum is considered in the T1-adic topology. As an example of our results, in F2[T], the sum P1(Pk 1) always converges to a rational function, and is 0 for k = 1.
