## Zeta values for function fields

##### Abstract:

We will describe the arithmetic of zeta values in the function field context. It is a curious mix of many analogies, some strong theorems where corresponding number field statements are conjectures, and some questions where the number field situation is understood, but the function field situation is not even conjecturally understood
