Course description and aims

This course deals with the unramified class field theory of algebraic surfaces over finite fields, and provides the basics of fundamentals groups and Chow groups of schemes. The instructor will review Picard groups of schemes, then explain the definitions and properties of algebraic K-groups and Chow groups, investigating several examples. Next, the instructor define the fundamental groups of schemes and express them using étale cohomologies. We will then study the relationship between algebraic K-groups on fields and étale cohomology. Using this, students will construct reciprocity maps for algebraic varieties over finite fields, and prove the main theorem of the unramified class field theory. This course follows Advanced Topics in Algebra E.
Algebraic K-groups are useful for answering several questions in the arithmetic geometry. This course is used for investigating algebraic K-groups and étale cohomologies with reciprocity maps of algebraic varieties over finite fields.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the analogy between integer rings and algebraic curves over finite fields.
2) Understand étale cohomologies of algebraic curves over algebraically closed fields.
3) Understand the structure of algebraic K-groups of fields.
4) Understand the unramified class field theory of algebraic curves over finite fields.
