Abstract: The starting point of the geometric approach to the theory of automorphic forms over function fields is a beautiful observation of Weil asserting that there is a natural bijection between the two-sided quotient GL(n,F)\GL(n,A)/GL(n,O) and the set of isomorphism classes rank n vector bundles on a curve. The goal of my talk will be to explain this result and to give some applications.
Key words: adeles and ideles in the function field case, algebraic curves, line and vector bundles on curves, Picard group, Riemann-Roch theorem.
