Segal’s Gamma rings and universal arithmetic
Segal's Gamma-rings provide a natural framework for absolute algebraic geometry. We use Almkvist's global Witt construction to explore the relation with J. Borger F1-geometry and compute the Witt
Algebraic Geometry Over Hyperrings
Some remarks on blueprints andF1-schemes
Over the past two decades several different approaches to defining a geometry over F1 have been proposed. In this paper, relying on Toën and Vaquié’s formalism (J.K-Theory 3: 437–500, 2009), we
Generalizations of Loday's assembly maps for Lawvere's algebraic theories
Loday’s assembly maps approximate the K-theory of group rings by the K-theory of the coefficient ring and the corresponding homology of the group. We present a generalization that places both

In work of Connes and Consani, Γ-spaces have taken a new importance. Segal introduced Γ-spaces in order to study stable homotopy theory, but the new perspective makes it apparent that also

A framework in which one can transpose many of the ingredients of the Weil proof as reformulated by Mattuck, Tate and Grothendieck is established and it is shown that RH gives a strong motivation to develop algebraic geometry in the emerging world of characteristic one.
An essay on the Riemann Hypothesis
The Riemann hypothesis is, and will hopefully remain for a long time, a great motivation to uncover and explore new parts of the mathematical world. After reviewing its impact on the development of
Homotopy Spectra and Diophantine Equations
Arguably, the first bridge between vast, ancient, but disjoint domains of mathematical knowledge, – topology and number theory, – was built only during the last fifty years. This bridge is the theory


Au-dessous de SpecZ .
In this article we use the theories of relative algebraic geometry and of homotopical algebraic geometry (cf. [HAGII]) to construct some categories of schemes defined under Spec ℤ. We define the
On thep-typical curves in Quillen'sK-theory
Twenty years ago Bloch, [Bl], introduced the complex C∗(A; p) of p-typical curves inK-theory and outlined its connection to the crystalline cohomology of Berthelot-Grothendieck. However, to prove
From monoids to hyperstructures: in search of an absolute arithmetic
We show that the trace formula interpretation of the explicit formulas expresses the counting functionN.q/ of the hypothetical curveC associated to the Riemann zeta function, as an intersection
Schemes over 𝔽1 and zeta functions
Abstract We determine the real counting function N(q) (q∈[1,∞)) for the hypothetical ‘curve’ $C=\overline {\mathrm {Spec}\,\Z }$ over 𝔽1, whose corresponding zeta function is the complete Riemann
Simplicial functors and stable homotopy theory
The problem of constructing a nice smash product of spectra is an old and well-known problem of algebraic topology. This problem has come to mean the following: Find a model category, which is
Universal Thickening of the Field of Real Numbers
We define the universal thickening of the field of real numbers. This construction is performed in three steps which parallel the universal perfection, the Witt construction and a completion process.
We develop the analogue of the Witt construction in characteristic one. We construct a functor from pairs (R; ) of a perfect semi-ring R of characteristic one and an element > 1 of R to real Banach
Characteristic one, entropy and the absolute point
We show that the mathematical meaning of working in characteristic one is directly connected to the fields of idempotent analysis and tropical algebraic geometry and we relate this idea to the notion
