global analytic geometry



Global analytic geometry is a developing subject that gives an alternative/complementary approach to scheme theory in arithmetic geometry and analytic number theory. The starting point of this theory is in Vladimir Berkovich’s book about spectral theory and non-archimedean analytic geometry. It was then developped further by Jérôme Poineau.

Many interesting results on polynomial equations can be proved using the mysterious interactions between algebraic, complex analytic and p-adic analytic geometry. The aim of global analytic geometry is to construct a category of spaces which contains these three geometries. (Paugam08)


Global analytic geometry

The main aim of the theory is to define, using global analytic tools, a good category of analytic motivic coefficients, that would help in proving naturally:

Argument in favor of its use are:

  • the fact that archimedean factors are deeply related to (analytic) Hodge theory;

  • the fact that all proofs of parts of local Langlands program use deeply non-archimedean analytic spaces that are out of the scope of classical algebraic scheme theory.
