Non-Additive Geometry and Frobenius Correspondences

Shai Haran
(Technion – Israel Institute of Technology)

The usual language of algebraic geometry is not appropriate for Arithmetical geometry: addition is singular at the real prime. We developed two languages that overcome this problem: one replace rings by the collection of “vectors” or by bi-operads and another based on “matrices” or props. These are the two languages of [Har17], but we omit the involutions which brings considerable simplifications. Once one understands the delicate commutativity condition one can proceed following Grothendieck footsteps exactly. The square matrices, when viewed up to conjugation, give us new commutative rings with Frobenius endomorphisms.
