Algebraic Geometry Seminar: "Algebraic versus topological entropy for varieties over finite fields"

Speaker: Vasudevan Srinivas, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research

Abstract: For an automorphism of an algebraic variety, we consider some properties of eigenvalues of the induced linear transformation on l-adic cohomology, motivated by some results from complex dynamics, related to the notion of entropy. This is a report on joint work with H'el`ene Esnault, and some subsequent work of K. Shuddhodan.
