Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Geometric motivic integration on Artin N-stacks
by Balwe, Chetan T., Ph.D., University of Pittsburgh, 2008, 112; 3335718
Abstract (Summary)

We construct a measure on the Boolean algebra of sets of formal arcs on an Artin stacks which are definable in the language of Denef-Pas. The measure takes its values in a ring that is obtained from the Grothendieck ring of Artin stacks over the residue field by a localization followed by a completion. This construction is analogous to the construction of motivic measure on varieties by Denef and Loeser. We also obtain a “change of base” formula which allows us to relate the motivic measure on different stacks.
