The series of seminars does not require big prerequisites, and is addressed to all students in mathematics from III year onwards. Some basic algebraic is required and some basic knowledge of the theory of algebraic curves too.
We intend to present the basic theory of zeta functions in function fields of curves over finite fields, and give several treatments for estimating the number of points.
To furnish basic knowledge
There are too many sources to be quoted and we shall give references during the course.
