Abstract:
The classical Riemann–Roch theorem for projective irreducible curves over perfect fields can be elegantly proved using adeles and their topological selfduality. This was known already to E. Artin and K. Iwasawa and can be viewed as a relation between adelic geometry and algebraic geometry in dimension one. In this paper we study geometric twodimensional adelic objects, endowed with appropriate higher topology, on algebraic proper smooth irreducible surfaces over perfect fields. We establish several new results about adelic objects and prove topological selfduality of the geometric adeles and the discreteness of the function field. We apply this to give a direct proof of finite dimension of adelic cohomology groups. Using an adelic Euler characteristic we establish an additive adelic form of the intersection pairing on the surfaces. We derive a direct and relatively short proof of the adelic Riemann–Roch theorem. Combining with the relation between adelic and Zariski cohomology groups, this also implies the Riemann–Roch theorem for surfaces.
Key words and phrases:
higher adeles, geometric adelic structure on surfaces, higher topologies, non locally compact groups, linear topological selfduality, adelic Euler characteristic, intersection pairing, Riemann–Roch theorem.
