Abstract: We determine the (arithmetic) local monodromy at 0 and at $ \infty$ of the Kloosterman sheaf using local Fourier transformations and Laumon's stationary phase principle. We then calculate $ \epsilon$-factors for symmetric products of the Kloosterman sheaf. Using Laumon's product formula, we get functional equations of $ L$-functions for these symmetric products and prove a conjecture of Evans on signs of constants of functional equations.
