by A. Genestier, B.C. Ngo

2006**Number of pages**: 50

**Description**:

The main goal of these lectures will be to explain the representability of moduli space abelian varieties with polarization, endomorphism and level structure, due to Mumford and the description of the set of its points over a finite field, due to Kottwitz.
