A Lower Bound on the Number of Cyclic Function Fields With Class Number Divisible by $n$
In this paper, we find a lower bound on the number of cyclic function fields of prime degree~$l$ whose class numbers are divisible by a given integer $n$. This generalizes a previous result of D. Cardon and R. Murty which gives a lower bound on the number of quadratic function fields with class numbers divisible by $n$.

Exponents of Class Groups of Quadratic Function Fields over Finite Fields
We find a lower bound on the number of imaginary quadratic extensions of the function field $\F_q(T)$ whose class groups have an element of a fixed order. More precisely, let $q \geq 5$ be a power of an odd prime and let $g$ be a fixed positive integer $\geq 3$. There are $\gg q^{\ell (\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{g})}$ polynomials $D \in \F_q[T]$ with $\deg(D) \leq \ell$ such that the class groups of the quadratic extensions $\F_q(T,\sqrt{D})$ have an element of order~$g$.

Characteristic $p$ Galois Representations That Arise from Drinfeld Modules
We examine which representations of the absolute Galois group of a field of finite characteristic with image over a finite field of the same characteristic may be constructed by the Galois group's action on the division points of an appropriate Drinfeld module.

Elliptic units and class fields of global function fields
Elliptic units of global function fields were first studied by D.~Hayes in the case that $\deg\infty$ is assumed to be $1$, and he obtained some class number formulas using elliptic units. We generalize Hayes' results to the case that $\deg\infty$ is arbitrary.
