Divisibility Properties of Kloosterman Sums

Speaker: Richard Moloney (Sch. Math Sc. UCD)

Time: 4:00PM
Date: Mon 21st February 2011

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room

We present results on Kloosterman sums, and show that the values taken by such sums (modulo powers of the characteristic of the underlying field) are related to the values taken by the trace, and similar functions. This talk is based on joint work with Faruk Gölo?lu, Gary McGuire, and Petr Lison?k.
