Abstract or Additional Information

Abstract: This talk will give a gentle introduction to Tamagawa numbers, including some history and a discussion of their number-theoretic significance. This talk is the first in what we hope to see develop into a study group focused on the recent work by Gaitsgory and Lurie on Tamagawa numbers for function fields.
