January 10 Quentin Guignard (Paris) "A zetafunctionological proof of Schanuel's theorem"
Abstract: In his 1950 thesis, John Tate gives an expression of the
completed zeta function of a number field in terms of an idelic integral.
I will recall the derivation of this expression, and I will explain how it
can be extended to the completed height zeta function of rational points
in projective spaces. I will then deduce from it a new proof of Schanuel's
theorem of rational points of bounded height in projective space, as well
as the meromorphic continuation and the functional equation of the
corresponding height zeta function.
