Character sums, multiple Dirichlet series and moduli spaces of curves
We review MDS constructions. Over function fields, computation of character sums is necessary. We will show how their geometric interpretation helps us understanding the structure of character sums, thus provides a tool for constructing MDS. Talk is based on joint project with A. Diaconu.
