Strongly Nonlinear Differential Equations with Carlitz Derivatives over a Function Field ANATOLY N. KOCHUBEI∗ Institute of Mathematics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Tereshchenkivska 3, Kiev, 01601 Ukraine

Abstract In earlier papers the author studied some classes of equations with Carlitz derivatives for Fq -linear functions, which are the natural function field counterparts of linear ordinary differential equations. Here we consider equations containing self-compositions u◦u◦· · ·◦u of the unknown function. As an algebraic background, imbeddings of the composition ring of Fq -linear holomorphic functions into skew fields are considered.

INTRODUCTION

Let K be the set of formal Laurent series t =

j=N

Fq , ξN 6= 0 if t 6= 0, q = pυ , υ ∈ Z+ , where p is a prime number. It is well known that K is a locally compact field of characteristic p, with natural operations over power series, and the topology given by the absolute value |t| = q −N , |0| = 0. The element x is a prime element of K. Any non-discrete locally compact field of characteristic p is isomorphic to such K. Below we denote by K c the completion of an algebraic closure K of K. The absolute value | · | can be extended in a unique way onto K c . An important class of functions playing a significant part in the analysis over K c is the class of Fq -linear functions. A function f defined on a Fq -subspace K0 of K (or K c ), with values in K c , is called Fq -linear if f (t1 + t2 ) = f (t1 ) + f (t2 ) and f (αt) = αf (t) for any t, t1 , t2 ∈ K0 , P qk α ∈ Fq . A typical example is a Fq -linear polynomial ck t or, more generally, a power series ∞ P k k ck tq , where ck ∈ K c and |ck | ≤ C q , convergent on a neighbourhood of the origin. k=0

In the theory of differential equations over K initiated in [7, 8] (which deals also with some non-analytic Fq -linear functions) the role of a derivative is played by the operator d=

√ q

◦ ∆,

(∆u)(t) = u(xt) − xu(t),

introduced by Carlitz [1] and used subsequently in various problems of analysis in positive characteristic [2, 3, 6, 11, 12]. ∗

This research was supported in part by CRDF under Grants UM1-2421-KV-02 and UM1-2567-OD-03.

The differential equations considered so far were analogs of linear ordinary differential equations, though the operator d is only Fq -linear and the meaning of a polynomial coefficient in the function field case is not a usual multiplication by a polynomial, but the action of a polynomial in the Fq -linear operator τ , τ u = uq . Note that Fq -linear polynomials form a ring with respect to the composition u ◦ v (the usual multiplication violates the Fq -linearity), so that natural classes of equations with stronger nonlinearities must contain expressions like u ◦ u or, more generally, u ◦ u · · · ◦ u. An investigation of such “strongly nonlinear” Carlitz differential equations is the main aim of this paper. However we have to begin with algebraic preliminaries of some independent interest (so that not all the results are used in the subsequent sections) regarding the ring RK of locally convergent Fq -linear holomorphic functions. The ring is non-commutative, and the algebraic structures related to strongly nonlinear Carlitz differential equations are much more complicated than their classical counterparts. So far their understanding is only at its initial stage. Here we show that RK is imbedded into a skew field of Fq -linear “meromorphic” series containing −k terms like tq . Note that a deep investigation of bi-infinite series of this kind convergent on the whole of K c has been carried out by Poonen [10]. We also prove an appropriate version of the implicit function theorem. After the above preparations we consider general strongly nonlinear first order Fq -linear differential equations (resolved with respect to the derivative of the unknown function) and prove an analog of the classical Cauchy theorem on the existence and uniqueness of a local holomorphic solution of the Cauchy problem. In our case the classical majorant approach (see e.g. [5]) does not work, and the convergence is proved by direct estimates. We also consider a class of Riccati-type equations possessing Fq -linear solutions which are meromorphic in the above sense.

Skew fields of Fq -linear power series

Let RK be the set of all formal power series a =

ak tq where ak ∈ K, |ak | ≤ Aq , and A

is a positive constant depending on a. In fact each series a = a(t) from RK converges on a neighbourhood of the origin in K (and K c ). RK is a ring with respect to the termwise addition and the composition ! l ∞ ∞ X X X k qn ql bk tq , an bl−n t , b = a◦b= l=0

as the operation of multiplication. Indeed, if |bk | ≤ B q , then, by the ultra-metric property of the absolute value, l X l−n qn n l q qn an bl−n ≤ max A ≤ Cq Bq 0≤n≤l n=0

where C = B max(A, 1). The unit element in RK is a(t) = t. It is easy to check that RK has no zero divisors.

where C1 = max(A1 , B1 ). In particular, in this case the coefficients of the series for an (the composition power) satisfy an estimate of this kind, with a constant independent of n. Proposition 1. The ring RK is a left Ore ring, thus it possesses a classical ring of fractions. Proof. By Ore’s theorem (see [4]) it suffices to show that for any elements a, b ∈ RK there exist such elements a′ , b′ ∈ RK that b′ 6= 0 and a′ ◦ b = b′ ◦ a.

The coefficients a′j , b′j can be defined inductively. Set a′l = b′l = 1. If a′j , b′j have been determined for l ≤ j ≤ k − 1, then a′k , b′k are determined from the equality of the (k + l)-th terms of the composition products: X X i i k k a′k αq + b′i aqj a′i bqj = b′k αq + i+j=k+l j6=l

(the above sums do not contain non-trivial terms with a′i , b′i , i ≥ k, since aj = bj = 0 for j < l). In particular, we may set b′k = 0, X i i k q q ′ ′ ′ −q . ai bj − bi aj ak = α i+j=k+l i

If this choice is made for each k ≥ l + 1, then we have b′i = 0 for every i ≥ l + 1, so that X i k a′k = α−q a′i bqj .

Suppose that |a′i | ≤ C4q for all i, l ≤ i ≤ k − 1 (this is obvious for i = 1, since a′l = 1). By (2), |a′k | ≤ C1q

Every non-zero element of RK is invertible in the ring of fractions AK , which is actually a skew field consisting of formal fractions c−1 d, c, d ∈ RK . Proposition 2. Each element a = c−1 d ∈ AK can be represented in the form a = tq m −m tq is the inverse of tq , a′ ∈ RK .

of n. Using the ultra-metric inequality we find that the coefficients of the formal power series ∞ P j (n) (t + w)−1 = aj tq (each of them is, up to a sign, a finite sum of the coefficients aj ) satisfy j=0

the same estimate. Therefore (c′ )−1 ∈ RK .

The skew field of fractions AK can be imbedded into wider skew fields where operations are more explicit. Let Kperf be the perfection of the field K. Denote by A∞ Kperf the composition ring ∞ P k ak tq , m ∈ Z, ak ∈ Kperf , am 6= 0 (if a 6= 0). Since τ of Fq -linear formal Laurent series a = k=m

is an automorphism of Kperf , A∞ Kperf is a special case of the well-known ring of twisted Laurent ∞ series [9]. Therefore AKperf is a skew field. qk Let AKperf be a subring of A∞ for all k ≥ 0. Kperf consisting of formal series with |ak | ≤ A Just as in the proof of Proposition 2, we show that AKperf is actually a skew field. Its elements −m can be written in the form tq ◦ c where c is an invertible element of the ring RKperf ∈ AKperf ∞ P k ak tq . In contrast to the case of the skew field AK , in AKperf the of formal power series q −m

k=0

by c is indeed the composition of (locally defined) functions, so that multiplication of t AKperf consists of fractional power series understood in the classical sense. Of course, AKperf can be extended further, by considering K or K c instead of Kperf . The above reasoning carries over to these cases (we can also consider the ring RK c of locally convergent Fq -linear power series as the initial ring). In each of them the presence of a fractional −m composition factor tq is a Fq -linear counterpart of a pole of the order m.

thus assuming the initial condition t z(t) → 0, as t → 0. Theorem 1. A solution (11) of the equation (10) exists with a non-zero radius of convergence, and is unique. Proof. We may assume that |aj0| ≤ 1,

aj0 → 0,

(12)

Indeed, if that is not satisfied, we can perform a time change t = γt1 obtaining an equation of j the same form, but with the coefficients aj0 γ q instead of aj0 , and it remains to choose γ with |γ| small enough. Note that, in contrast with the case of the usual derivatives, the operator d commutes with the above time change. k−1 1/q qk = ck [k]1/q tq , Assuming (12) we substitute (11) into (10) using the fact that d ck t k

Using Proposition 4 we can easily reduce to the form (10) some classes of equations given in the form not resolved with respect to dz. As in the classical case of equations over C (see [5]), some of equations (10) can have also non-holomorphic solutions, in particular those which are meromorphic in the sense of Sect. 2.
