Abstract

We study the Hardy-Littlewood method for the Laurent series field Fq((1/T)) over the finite field Fq with q elements. We show that if λ1, λ2, λ3 are non-zero elements in Fq((1/T)) satisfying λ12∉Fq(T) and sgn(λ1)+sgn(λ2)+sgn(λ 3)=0,then the values of the sumλ1P12P 23P3, as Pi (i=1, 2, 3) run independently through all monic irreducible polynomials in Fq[T], are everywhere dense on the "non-Archimedean" line Fq((1/T)), where sgn(f)∈Fq denotes the leading coefficient of f∈Fq((1/T)).
