I'm interested in many things, but algebraic geometry I love.

comment What is the motivation for defining the conductor of an abelian variety?
Kestutis, is the description you gave here the motivation for defining a conductor of an abelian group? What (originally) was the purpose of this notion?

comment What is the motivation for defining the conductor of an abelian variety?
Kestutis, that sounds exactly like the kind of explanation I want. Where can I read more about this? (In particular I am not familiar with "semisimplification" and "Grothendieck's quasi-unipotence thm".) Noam, in that case what makes the definition of an abelian variety over a global field natural?

Ah, I see. Is it some limit of this procedure, or am I completely on the wrong track?

comment How can one interpret homology and Stokes' Theorem via derived categories?
Thanks, Denis! That sounds exactly like the kind of thing I'm looking for. Do you have a reference I can look at?

comment How can one interpret homology and Stokes' Theorem via derived categories?
The question is: what is a reference for a proof of Stokes' Theorem using derived categories? That sounds pretty well defined for me. If people prefer, they can give a proof of Stokes' Theorem using derived categories rather than to give a reference. Is that really not well-defined?
