Number Theory Seminar

I will build a commutative ring that satisfies "standard conjectures", starting from a finite field. What is this ring? What does it say about the finite field? This talk will be elementary: No background beyond the first year graduate algebra will be necessary. Joint with Mats Boij, Bill Huang, and Greg Smith.
