Weil's Conjecture for Function Fields: Volume I (AMS-199)

Dennis Gaitsgory and Jacob Lurie

Abstract

A central concern of number theory is the study of local-to-global principles, which describe the behavior of a global field K in terms of the behavior of various completions of K. This book looks at a specific example of a local-to-global principle: Weil's conjecture on the Tamagawa number of a semisimple algebraic group G over K. In the case where K is the function field of an algebraic curve X, this conjecture counts the number of G-bundles on X (global information) in terms of the reduction of G at the points of X (local information). The goal of this book is to give a conceptual proof of ... More

Keywords: number theory, Weil's conjecture, G-bundles, algebraic topology, factorization homology, local-to-global principle, cohomology
