The Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem and the Frobenius morphism

17 November 2015

Let p>0 be a prime number. We shall describe a short Frobenius-theoretic proof of the Adams-Riemann-Roch theorem for the p-th Adams operation, when the involved schemes live in characteristic p and the morphism is smooth. This result implies the Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem for smooth morphisms in positive characteristic and the Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch theorem in any characteristic. This is joint work with R. Pink.
