### Abstract

Kashina, Montgomery and Ng introduced the n-th indicator ν_{n}(H) of a finite-dimensional Hopf algebra H and showed that the indicators have some interesting properties such as the gauge invariance. The aim of this paper is to investigate the properties of ν_{n}’s. In particular, we obtain the cyclotomic integrality of ν_{n} and a formula for ν_{n} of the Drinfeld double. Our results are applied to the finite-dimensional pointed Hopf algebra u(D, λ, µ) introduced by Andruskiewitsch and Schneider. As an application, we obtain the second indicator of u_{q}(sl_{2}) and show that if p and q are roots of unity of the same order, then u_{p}(sl_{2}) and u_{q}(sl_{2}) are gauge equivalent if and only if q = p, where p and q are roots of unity of the same odd order.
