Weil-Étale Cohomology and Zeta-Values of Proper Regular Arithmetic Schemes


We give a conjectural description of the vanishing order and leading Taylor coefficient of the Zeta function of a proper, regular arithmetic scheme X at any integer n in terms of Weil-étale cohomology complexes. This extends work of Lichtenbaum [65] and Geisser [36] for X of characteristic p, of Lichtenbaum [66] for X = Spec(O_F) and n = 0 where F is a number field, and of the second author for arbitrary X and n = 0 [72]. We show that our conjecture is compatible with the Tamagawa number conjecture of Bloch, Kato, Fontaine and Perrin-Riou [31] if X is smooth over Spec(O_F), and hence that it holds in cases where the Tamagawa number conjecture is known.
