By Conference on Algebraic Geometry (1988 Sundance Institute), Brian Harbourne, Robert Speiser

This quantity includes the court cases of the NSF-CBMS nearby convention on Algebraic Geometry, held in Sundance, Utah, in July 1988. The convention all for algebraic curves and comparable types. a number of the papers accrued right here symbolize lectures introduced on the convention, a few document on examine performed in the course of the convention, whereas others describe similar paintings performed somewhere else

To deal with the divisor classes of degree < g — 1 we can first translate them by a divisor with positive degree and then apply the previous argument. In particular, the number of divisor classes of any degree is equal to the number of divisor classes of degree 0, which is simply the cardinality of C1O(C). This proves the lemma. Remark C1O(Q is the analogue of the class group of an algebraic number field; thus when convenient we shall refer to the cardinality of C1O(C) as the class number of the curve C and denote it by h{C).

5 Pre-adeles (repartitions) Let K be the function field of the curve C with k as its field of constants. Let S be the set of all closed points on C. 6 A family {rP}PeSof elements rPe K is called a pre-adele if ordP(rP) > 0 for all P e S except possibly a finite number. The element rP is called the P-th component of the pre-adele r = {rP}PeS. e. a subset of the cartesian product f^Pes^Remark If we were to allow the elements rP to lie in the completion of K with respect to the valuation ord P , we would obtain the ordinary notion of adele.

5 For any two divisors D, D' e Div(C), we have where [D, D'] is t/ie least common multiple of D and D'. Proof. sKlk(D)nQisKlk{D'). To verify the inclusion in the other direction we consider an element r e A ([£>,£']) and observe that ord P (r)> -max{ord P (D),ordp(D')} holds for all P. Write r = r' + r" where the P component of r' and r" are given by rP = rP for all P with ord P D > ord P D' and rP = 0 and rP = rP for all P with ordp D < ord P D'. ). This decomposition of r implies w(r) = co(r') +
