REAL QUADRATIC FUNCTION FIELDS OF MINIMAL TYPE Byeon, Dongho; Keem, Jiae; Lee, Sangyoon;
In this paper, we will introduce the notion of the real quadratic function fields of minimal type, which is a function field analogue to Kawamoto and Tomita's notion of real quadratic fields of minimal type. As number field cases, we will show that there are exactly 6 real quadratic function fields of class number one that are not of minimal type.
