Certain Exponential Sums and Random Walks on Elliptic Curves
For a given elliptic curve $\E$, we obtain an upper bound on the discrepancy of sets of multiples $z_sG$ where $z_s$ runs through a sequence $\cZ=\(z_1, \dots, z_T\)$ such that $k z_1,\dots, kz_T $ is a permutation of $z_1, \dots, z_T$, both sequences taken modulo $t$, for sufficiently many distinct values of $k$ modulo $t$. We apply this result to studying an analogue of the power generator over an elliptic curve. These results are elliptic curve analogues of those obtained for multiplicative groups of finite fields and residue rings.

Short Kloosterman Sums for Polynomials over Finite Fields
We extend to the setting of polynomials over a finite field certain estimates for short Kloosterman sums originally due to Karatsuba. Our estimates are then used to establish some uniformity of distribution results in the ring $\mathbb{F}_q[x]/M(x)$ for collections of polynomials either of the form $f^{-1}g^{-1}$ or of the form $f^{-1}g^{-1}+afg$, where $f$ and $g$ are polynomials coprime to $M$ and of very small degree relative to $M$, and $a$ is an arbitrary polynomial. We also give estimates for short Kloosterman sums where the summation runs over products of two irreducible polynomials of small degree. It is likely that this result can be used to give an improvement of the Brun-Titchmarsh theorem for polynomials over finite fields.
