Title: Short exponential sums and their applications over function fields

Abstract:

In joint work with Will Sawin, we obtain (square-root) cancellation in quite general incomplete exponential sums for the ring F_q[x] of polynomials over a finite field. This has applications to problems in analytic number theory such as the Chowla conjecture, Bateman-Horn conjecture, and the number of real quadratic function fields with a huge class group.
