Exponential Sums over Finite Fields and Applications
November 1 to 5, 2010
Organisers: Emmanuel Kowalski (ETH Zürich), Nicholas Katz (Princeton University), Philippe Michel (EPF Lausanne), Richard Pink (ETH Zürich)
The goal of this conference is to present all aspects of exponential sums over finite fields, understood in the widest sense, and their applications, in particular to problems in analytic number theory. It is hoped that this conference will help reinforce the understanding of the aspects involving tools from algebraic geometry, and the often intricate ways that exponential sums depending on these tools turn up in apparently unrelated arithmetic problems.
