Abstract: Let be a field of characteristic . It is proved that each automorphism of the ring of differential operators on a polynomial algebra is uniquely determined by the elements , and that the set of all the extensions of the Frobenius (homomorphism) from certain maximal commutative polynomial subalgebras of , such as , to the ring is equal to where is the set of all the extensions of the Frobenius from to that leave invariant the subalgebra of scalar differential operators. The set is found explicitly; it is large (a typical extension depends on countably many independent parameters).
