### Is there a Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch type of theorem generalizing Grothendieck's Lefschetz trace formula

Grothendieck deduced that the L-function of a (constructible) $\ell$-adic sheaf on a variety over $\mathbf{F}_p$ is rational from the generalized trace formula.
My first question is based on the ...

### Weil conjectures for higher dimensional cycles?

Let $X$ be a smooth projective variety over $\mathbb{F}_{q}$. For each pair of positive integers $n$ and $d$, let $\text{Chow}_{n,d}(X)$ denote the (coarse) moduli space of $n$-cycles of degree $d$ on ...

### Do the Standard Conjectures imply parts of the “Weil II” Riemann Hypothesis?

It is known that Grothendieck's Standard Conjectures on algebraic cycles imply the Riemann Hypothesis of the original Weil Conjectures. However, do they also say something about the version of the ...

### Does Stepanov's method extend to complete intersections?

Stepanov (circa 1970) created the polynomial method to limit the rational points of an algebraic curve over $\mathbb{F}_q$, leading to one of several alternative proofs of Weil's Riemann hypothesis ...

### Is semistability of smooth Weil sheaf preserved under tensor product?

Let $X_0$ be a smooth, geometrically connected scheme over $\mathbb{F}_q$. As usual, let $\tau : \bar{\mathbb{Q}}_{\ell} \simeq \mathbb{C}$ be a fixed isomorphism. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be the category of ...
