You start with q, which I assume is a fixed prime number, and define zeta as a primitive qth root of unity in the complex numbers. You then choose a polynomial F and suppose that $$F(\zeta^m)=F(\zeta)$$ whenever $$v(m)\equiv 0\pmod{e}$$. Presumably this e is not the constant 2.718... that you used earlier! Is e a fixed integer here? In explaining what v(n) means, you then refer to both e and f - what is f?
