Drinfeld modules and local fields of positive characteristic

E.-U. Gekeler

Abstract. This work is a survey of relations between Drinfeld modules and higher dimensional fields of positive characteristic. The main new result stated is the expression of vanishing orders of certain modular forms through partial zeta values.
Keywords. Drinfeld modules, modular forms.
