**Lectures on Etale Cohomology**

by J. S. Milne

2008**Number of pages**: 196

**Description**:

These are the notes for a course taught at the University of Michigan in 1989 and 1998. The emphasis is on heuristic arguments rather than formal proofs and on varieties rather than schemes. The notes also discuss the proof of the Weil conjectures (Grothendieck and Deligne).
