Does the Riemann hypothesis for liftable varieties over a finite field imply the Riemann hypothesis for all varieties over a finite field

The Riemann hypothesis for varieties over a finite field has been proven by Deligne. Still I would like to ask the following question. A variety $X$ over a finite field $k$ is liftable if there ...

Special values of zeta functions and extensions of base fields.

Let $X$ be a scheme of finite type over a finite field $k=\mathbb{F}_{q}$ of $q$ elements. Then, one can define the zeta function $Z_{X/k}(T)$ of $X$ ovet $k$ as $\prod_{x\in ...

reference-request for connection between numerator of zeta-function and characteristic polynomial of Frobenius on hyperelliptic curves over finite fields

Let $H$ be a hyperellipitic curve of genus $g$ defined over $\mathbb{F}_q$. The Frobenius endomorphism operates on the divisor class group of $H$ and satisfies a characteristic polynomial ...

Behaviour of Zeta-function under Finite Morphism

Let X ---> Y be a finite surjective morphism of smooth, projective, connected varieties over a finite field F_q. Can one describe the zeta function Z(X, t) in terms of the zeta-function Z(Y,t) of ...
