By Ams-Ims-Siam Joint Summer Research Conference on Applications of curve, Michael D. Fried

This quantity provides the result of the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint summer season examine convention held on the college of Washington (Seattle). The talks have been dedicated to quite a few facets of the idea of algebraic curves over finite fields and its various purposes. the 3 uncomplicated subject matters are the subsequent: Curves with many rational issues. a number of articles describe major techniques to the development of such curves: the Drinfeld modules and fiber product equipment, the moduli house method, and the buildings utilizing classical curves; Monodromy teams of attribute $p$ covers. a few authors awarded the implications and conjectures with regards to the learn of the monodromy teams of curves over finite fields. particularly, they learn the monodromy teams from genus $0$ covers, rate reductions of covers, and particular computation of monodromy teams over finite fields; and, Zeta features and hint formulas.To a wide volume, papers dedicated to this subject replicate the contributions of Professor Bernard Dwork and his scholars. This convention used to be the final attended via Professor Dwork prior to his loss of life, and several other papers encouraged via his presence comprise commentaries in regards to the functions of hint formulation and $L$-function. the amount additionally incorporates a specific creation paper through Professor Michael Fried, which is helping the reader to navigate within the fabric offered within the ebook

Set β0 = a0 , γ0 = 1, β1 = a0 a1 + 1, γ1 = a1 , βi = ai βi−1 + βi−2 , γi = ai γi−1 + γi−2 , for i ≥ 2. Then 1) βi γi−1 − βi−1 γi = (−1)i−1 , i ≥ 1; 2) gcd(βi , γi ) = 1; 3) bi = βi and ci = γi , where bi , ci ∈ Z≥0 are such that gcd(bi , ci ) = 1 and bi ci Proof. 1) We use induction. For i = 1 we have β1 γ0 − β0 γ1 = (a0 a1 + 1)1 − a0 a1 = 1 = (−1)0 . For i ≥ 1 we get, using the induction hypothesis βi+1 γi − βi γi+1 = (ai+1 βi + βi−1 )γi − βi (ai+1 γi + γi−1 ) = βi−1 γi − βi γi−1 = −(−1)i−1 = (−1)i .

For α ∈ R, α > 0 and m ∈ Z, m > 0, we have m = √ n the following observation . ⌊α⌋ m Proof. Write α = u + β with u an integer and β ∈ R, 0 ≤ β < 1. Write u = qm + r with 0 ≤ r < m. Then u β r+β α = + = q+ =q m m m m because r + β < m and hence r+β m < 1. On the other hand, r u ⌊α⌋ = q+ = q. 19 We want to √ factorise n = 33. The continued fraction for 33: a0 = 5 a1 = 1 a2 = 2 a3 = 1 a4 = 10 √ −5 x ˜0 = x − a0 = 33 √ 5+ 33 1 x1 = √33−5 = 8 √ x ˜1 = x0 − a1 = −3+8 33 √ x2 = x11 = −3+8√33 = 3+ 3 33 x ˜ 2 = x1 √ − a2 = 3+ 33 x3 = 8 x ˜3 = x2 −√a3 = x4 = 5 + 33 ...

8 Let f ∈ k[x], then there exist c ∈ k, irreducible monic f1 , . . , fr ∈ k[x] and e1 , . . , er ∈ Z>0 with f = cf1e1 · · · frer . Moreover, this factorisation is “essentially unique”; meaning that if we have another one f = dg1d1 · · · gsds , then c = d, r = s, and after a permutation of the indices, fi = gi , ei = di . Proof. Note that c is the coefficient of the highest degree monomial in f , hence it is uniquely determined. So without loss of generality we may assume that f is monic. If f is irreducible then there is nothing to prove.
