Wednesday 4 June, Seminar
Time and Room: 11-12, B3.02
Speaker: Jan Tuitman (Leuven)
Title: p-adic cohomology and counting points
abstract : We will talk about p-adic methods for computing the
Hasse-Weil zeta function of a curve or a surface over a finite field.
After introducing some p-adic cohomology we will focus on
families of curves in toric surfaces and explain how one can
apply deformation and fibration techniques to them to obtain
fast point counting algorithms.
