Dedekind sums in finite characteristic. (English) Zbl 1225.11055

Summary: This paper is concerned with Dedekind sums in finite characteristic. We introduce Dedekind sums for lattices, and establish the reciprocity law for them.


11F20 Dedekind eta function, Dedekind sums
11F52 Modular forms associated to Drinfel’d modules
11G09 Drinfel’d modules; higher-dimensional motives, etc.
