Title: Crystalline cohomology
Abstract: This talk will provide an overview of key concepts in crystalline cohomology. We will begin with Grothendieck's heuristic argument that, because de Rham cohomology is independent of choice of smooth lift, an intrinsic characteristic zero-valued cohomology should exist for schemes in characteristic p. We will then discuss divided power structures and the crystalline site. After stating the key theorems, we will describe a relative setup in which the general theory of topoi plays a more prominent role. We will conclude with sketches of crucial ideas in the comparison isomorphisms, and a glimpse of the relationship between crystals and connections.
