Global and Local:
One Small Step

Audrey Terras, University of Maryland '64:

We cannot discuss the proof here as it requires some knowledge of zeta functions of curves over finite fields.

Charles Small, Harvard '64:

The moral is that the zeta function exhibits a subtle connection between the "global" (topological, characteristic 0) nature of the curve and its "local" (diophantine, characteristic p for all but finitely many "bad" primes p)  behaviour.  The full extent of this connection only becomes apparent in the context of varieties more general than curves….
