Overview of Arakelov intersection theory and the Arakelov Chow ring - MathOverflow most recent 30 from http://mathoverflow.net 2013-05-19T09:49:21Z http://mathoverflow.net/feeds/question/103308 http://www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.5/rdf http://mathoverflow.net/questions/103308/overview-of-arakelov-intersection-theory-and-the-arakelov-chow-ring Overview of Arakelov intersection theory and the Arakelov Chow ring Joe Silverman 2012-07-27T13:40:19Z 2012-07-27T14:31:12Z <p>I'm looking for a reference that gives an overview of the most important properties of Arakelov intersection theory (on arithmetic varieties of arbitrary dimension) and that describes basic properties of the Arakelov Chow ring. There's a similar MO question asking about <a href="http://mathoverflow.net/questions/52665/survey-article-on-intersection-theory" rel="nofollow">survey articles on (classical) intersection theory</a>, so I guess that I'm asking the same question, but for Arakelov intersection theory.</p> http://mathoverflow.net/questions/103308/overview-of-arakelov-intersection-theory-and-the-arakelov-chow-ring/103312#103312 Answer by Ariyan Javanpeykar for Overview of Arakelov intersection theory and the Arakelov Chow ring Ariyan Javanpeykar 2012-07-27T14:31:12Z 2012-07-27T14:31:12Z <p>A good reference in my humble opinion is Bost's paper in Bourbaki:</p> <p>Théorie de l'intersection et théorème de Riemann-Roch arithmétiques</p> <p>Séminaire BOURBAKI. Novembre 1990. 43ème année, 1990-91, n° 731</p> <p>Another reference would be Soule's book on Arakelov geometry "Lectures on Arakelov geometry" written with Abramovich, Burnol and Kramer. </p> <p>Finally, I know you didn't ask this, but in the case of arithmetic surfaces there are more references (besides Faltings' "Calculus on arithmetic surfaces" and Arakelov's original paper). For example, Deligne's paper "le determinant de la cohomologie" and R. de Jong's Ph.D. thesis: <a href="http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~rdejong/publications/thesis.pdf" rel="nofollow">http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~rdejong/publications/thesis.pdf</a> Also, Moret-Bailly's paper "Metriques permises" in Szpiro's 1985 Asterisque is wonderful.</p>
