MPIM Seminar Room

We are excited to announce a semester-long reading seminar on the exponential sum over finite fields. Throughout the seminar, participants will delve into the interaction of analytic number theory and arithmetic geometry. Specifically, we will learn Stepanov's “elementary” method to prove Weil’s Conjecture for curves over finite fields. We kindly invite all Ph.D students and postdocs who are interested in this topic.

The main reference is “Equations over Finite Fields: An Elementary Approach” by Schmidt. We will try to cover Chapter I, II, IV of the book. More details will be discussed during the organization meeting (Oct. 13).
