Drinfeld modules have recently come under significant scrutiny, due in part to their close parallels with classical elliptic curves in the rank-2 case. This has led to many theorems and techniques that exist for elliptic curves having analogous results in the Drinfeld setting. This talk will focus on extending techniques used to determine the minimal polynomial for the rank-2 case, inspired by algorithms related to point counting on elliptic curves, to arbitrary rank Drinfeld modules.
