We give an upper bound for the Faddeev index of a central simple algebra of prime exponent p over the rational function field in the case where the ramification sequence of the algebra consists of rational points. This bound depends only on the number of ramification points and in many cases turns out to be strict. Let k be a field containing a primitive p… (More)
