In the 90's Tsfasman and Vladuts proved an asymptotic formula for the growth of the class number in a tower of curves over a finite field with growing genus. They expressed the answer as a weighted (infinite) sum of certain constants associated to the tower. I will talk about a natural generalization of their formula where we replace the class number (= number of points of Pic^0) with the number of semistable G-bundles for a split reductive group G. The answer turns out to be expressed as a weighted sum of the same constants but with weights depending on G in a nice and controllable way.
