## Abstract

Let A=F_{q}[T] be the polynomial ring over F_{q}, and F be the field of fractions of A. Let ϕ be a Drinfeld A-module of rank r≥2 over F. For all but finitely many primes p◁A, one can reduce ϕ modulo p to obtain a Drinfeld A-module ϕ⊗F_{p} of rank r over F_{p}=A/p. The endomorphism ring E_{p}=End_{Fp}(ϕ⊗F_{p}) is an order in an imaginary field extension K of F of degree r. Let O_{p} be the integral closure of A in K, and let π_{p}∈E_{p} be the Frobenius endomorphism of ϕ⊗F_{p}. Then we have the inclusion of orders A[π_{p}]⊂E_{p}⊂O_{p} in K. We prove that if End_{Falg}(ϕ)=A, then for arbitrary non-zero ideals n,m of A there are infinitely many p such that n divides the index χ(E_{p}/A[π_{p}]) and m divides the index χ(O_{p}/E_{p}). We show that the index χ(E_{p}/A[π_{p}]) is related to a reciprocity law for the extensions of F arising from the division points of ϕ. In the rank r=2 case we describe an algorithm for computing the orders A[π_{p}]⊂E_{p}⊂O_{p}, and give some computational data.
