Abstract: Firstly, we give a very brief review of Weil conjecture. Following works of Scholl and Katz, we then outline a "10-line" proof of the Weil conjecture by deformation to smooth hypersurfaces and induction on the dimension. In particular, we will explain the last step i.e how to derive RH of the special fiber from the (equal characteristic) weight-monodromy conjecture of the generic fiber, using the weight spectral sequence as an input.
