Organizer:School of Mathematical Sciences Capital Normal University

Introducction:We explore possible stable properties of the sequence of zeta functions associated to a geometric Z_p-tower of curves over a finite field of characteristic p, in the spirit of Iwasawa theory. Several fundamental questions and conjectures will be discussed, and some supporting examples will be given. This introductory talk is accessible to graduate students in number theory and arithmetic geometry.
