Linear independence of monomials of multizeta values in positive characteristic

  • Chieh-Yu Chang (a1)

Abstract

In this paper, we study transcendence theory for Thakur multizeta values in positive characteristic. We prove an analogue of the strong form of Goncharov’s conjecture. The same result is also established for Carlitz multiple polylogarithms at algebraic points.
