The first major application was the relative version of Serre's theorem showing that the cohomology of a coherent sheaf on a complete variety is finite dimensional ; Grothendieck's theorem shows that the higher direct images of coherent sheaves under a proper map are coherent ; this reduces to Serre's theorem over a one-point space.

Thus, V ( S ) is " the same as " the maximal ideals containing S. Grothendieck's innovation in defining Spec was to replace maximal ideals with all prime ideals ; in this formulation it is natural to simply generalize this observation to the definition of a closed set in the spectrum of a ring.
However, Grothendieck's standard conjectures remain open ( except for the hard Lefschetz theorem, which was proved by Deligne by extending his work on the Weil conjectures ), and the analogue of the Riemann hypothesis was proved by, using the étale cohomology theory but circumventing the use of standard conjectures by an ingenious argument.
This is done by studying the zeta functions of the even powers E < sup > k </ sup > of E and applying Grothendieck's formula for the zeta functions as alternating products over cohomology groups.
pointed out that a generalization of Rankin's result for higher even values of k would imply the Ramanujan conjecture, and Deligne realized that in the case of zeta functions of varieties, Grothendieck's theory of zeta functions of sheaves provided an analogue of this generalization.

In mathematics, Grothendieck's Galois theory is a highly abstract approach to the Galois theory of fields, developed around 1960 to provide a way to study the fundamental group of algebraic topology in the setting of algebraic geometry.
Grothendieck's use of these universes ( whose existence cannot be proved in ZFC ) led to some uninformed speculation that étale cohomology and its applications ( such as the proof of Fermat's last theorem ) needed axioms beyond ZFC.
