Exponential Sums, Ree Groups and Suzuki Groups: Conjectures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Inspired by work of Gross, we exhibit rigid local systems on the affine line whose monodromy groups we conjecture to be the Suzuki and Ree groups, in characteristics 2 and 3 respectively. We give some numerical evidence for these conjectures.
