Abstract: The Weil conjectures is a deep and famous theorem (conjectured by Andre Weil and proven after work of others by Pierre Deligne) in algebraic geometry, which relates the homology (thus the topology) of complex projective algebraic varieties to counting of points of algebraic varieties over finite fields. The aim of this lecture is to give an idea of what the theorem says and give some elementary examples.
