### Abstract

Abstract. A Kummer theory of division points over rank one Drinfeld A = Fq[T]- modules defined over global function fields was given. The results are in complete analogy with the classical Kummer theory of division points over the multiplicative algebraic group Gm defined over number fields. Let K be a number field and let ¯ K be a fixed algebraic closure of K. For any positive integer n, let µn be the group of n-th roots of unity in ¯ K. Let G(n) = Gal(K(µn)/K). For K = Q, G(n) ∼ = (Z/nZ) ∗ , and for any number field K, G(l) ∼ = (Z/lZ) ∗ for almost all prime numbers l.

For a general rank one Drinfeld A-module, using the A-module structure of HΓ(l) together with the independence property given by L.Denis ( see =-=[4]-=-, Theorem 5), the above result (ii) can be established easily.

Then, for the Carlitz module case, a Kummer theory along the line of the classical theory ( see =-=[9]-=-, Ch.VI, Section 11) can be developed with this A-module structure naturally equipped throughout the whole theory.
