Étale Cohomology (Lecture 1)
Antoine Ducros (Paris VI)

5 juillet 2010

Étale cohomology was introduced in the scheme-theoretic context by Grothendieck in the 50’s and 60’s in order to provide a purely algebraic cohomology theory, satisfying the same fundamental properties as the singular cohomology of complex varieties, which was needed for proving the Weil conjectures. For other deep arithmetic reasons (related to Langlands program) it appeared later that it should also be worthwhile developing such a theory in the p-adic analytic context. This was done by Berkovich in the early 90’s. In this series of lectures, I plan, after having given some general motivations, to spend some time about the notion of a Grothendieck topology and its associated cohomology theory. Then I will explain the basic ideas and properties of both scheme-theoretic and Berkovich-theoretic étale cohomology theories (which are closely related to each other), and the fundamental results like various comparison theorems, Poincaré duality, purity and so forth. My purpose is not to give detailed proofs, which are for most of them highly technical. I will rather insist on examples, trying to show how étale cohomology can at the same time be quite close to the classical topological intuition, and deal in a completely natural manner with deep-field arithmetic phenomena (such as Galois theory), which allows sometimes to think to the latter in a purely geometrical way.
