Title: On a Drinfeld modular analogue of Beilinson's conjecture
Abstract: For a variety over the field of rational numbers, Beilinson's conjecture describes how the motivic cohomology, the Deligne cohomology, and the Hasse-Weil L-function are related. We consider its analogue for a variety over a function field of a curve over a finite field. Our main result (joint work with Seidai Yasuda (Kyoto university)) is a Drinfeld modular analogue of Beilinson's work on (elliptic) modular curves. In this talk, we recall Beilinson's conjecture and Drinfeld modules briefly, and discuss certain tools such as Euler systems involved in our proof.
