Kleine AG: Weil Conjectures


The next Kleine AG is going to be on the Weil conjectures: More precisely, our goal is to study Deligne's proof of the Riemann hypothesis part of the Weil conjectures ("Weil II"), with Laumon's simplification via the \(l\)-adic Fourier transform. Here is the detailed program.


This Kleine AG was originally supposed to take place in April 2020, but was postponed indefinitely. We are now cautiously optimistic that we can hold it (in person!) in early 2022. We are currently finalising the date. Here is the poll. It will close on 30 Nov.


This time, we are going to meet in Bonn, either at the Max Planck Institute or at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bonn (TBC). The meeting is organised by Mingjia Zhang and Ben Heuer. Contact us if you have any further questions


There will be 5 talks, and you can give one! If you would like to participate and give a talk, let us know by email.

What is Kleine AG?

Kleine AG (roughly "small workshop") is a one-day workshop where young mathematicians meet to learn one specific topic in number theory or algebraic geometry through a series of talks. Apart from learning maths, the idea is that it's fun and a nice opportunity to meet new colleagues. What's a "young mathematician": Mainly advanced Master's students and PhD students, with some postdocs sprinkled in. Kleine AG has a long tradition and meets roughly twice a year.

Do I have to give a talk?

No, you can also just come and listen and ask questions and meet people. That said, it's definitely more fun to give one, plus you will probably learn more. But it's all pretty relaxed.


The traditional website is currently moving to a different server, and we've taken it offline while it is settling in. For now, this temporary website serves to organise the 2022 Kleine AG. You can still find the history of Kleine AG programs here .

Mailing List

There is a mailing list which is the main means of communication for Kleine AG, in particular future dates and programs. To subscribe, just send an email to agzt-l-request@math.uni-bonn.de containing »help« in the subject line or body. This will give you instructions for how to subscribe.
