The textual content that includes this quantity is a set of surveys and unique works from specialists within the fields of algebraic quantity idea, analytic quantity conception, harmonic research, and hyperbolic geometry. A section of the accumulated contributions were built from lectures given on the "International convention at the celebration of the sixtieth Birthday of S. J. Patterson", held on the collage Göttingen, July 27-29 2009. the various integrated chapters were contributed by way of invited members.

This quantity provides and investigates the latest advancements in quite a few key themes in analytic quantity conception and several other similar parts of mathematics.

The quantity is meant for graduate scholars and researchers of quantity thought in addition to utilized mathematicians attracted to this wide field.

Assume that k is finite and let S be a complex of -adic sheaves on a variety X over k. We set χk (S ) = ∑ (−1)i Tr(Fr, H i (X , S )), i∈Z where X = X × Spec k. Spec k We shall denote by (Ql )X the constant sheaf with fiber Ql . According to the Grothendieck–Lefschetz fixed point formula, we have χk ((Ql )X ) = #X (k). 3 Semi-Infinite Orbits As in the introduction, we set K = k((t)), O = k[[t]]. We let Gr = G(K )/G(O), which we are just going to consider as a set with no structure. Each λ ∈ Λ is a homomorphism Gm → H; in particular, it defines a homomorphism K ∗ → H(K ).

Recall that U is a group-scheme, which can be written as a projective limit of finite-dimensional unipotent group-schemes Ui ; 24 A. Braverman et al. moreover, each Ui has a filtration by normal subgroups with successive quotients isomorphic to Ga . Hence, it is enough to prove that the above map is an isomorphism when U = Ga . In this case, we just need to check that any element of the quotient k((t))/k[[t]] has unique lift to a polynomial u(t) ∈ k[t,t −1 ] such that u(∞) = 0, which is obvious.
