Drinfeld Modules of Rank 1

Using narrow ray class extensions obtained from Drinfelʹd modules of rank 1, new algebraic function fields can be constructed. These methods are developed in [1], yielding new fields over 2 (and some over 3). In [2], similar methods are used for obtaining new fields over F4 (and one example over F8). In [3], [2, Theorem 3] is used for constructing fields over F9 and F27. The methods presented in [4] lead to fields over F4, F8, F9, F16, and F27.
