Abstract

Artin’s conjecture states that supersingular K3 surfaces over finite fields have Picard number 22. In this paper, we prove Artin’s conjecture over fields of characteristic p≥5. This implies Tate’s conjecture for K3 surfaces over finite fields of characteristic p≥5. Our results also yield the Tate conjecture for divisors on certain holomorphic symplectic varieties over finite fields, with some restrictions on the characteristic. As a consequence, we prove the Tate conjecture for cycles of codimension 2 on cubic fourfolds over finite fields of characteristic p≥5.
