Intersection numbers and higher derivatives of L-functions for function fields, II

 In joint work with Wei Zhang, we prove a higher derivative analogue of the Waldspurger formula and the Gross-Zagier formula in the function field setting under the assumption that the relevant objects are everywhere unramified. Our formula relates the self-intersection number of certain cycles on the moduli of Shtukas for GL(2) to higher derivatives of automorphic L-functions for GL(2). This second talk does not assume the first talk, and I will give motivations and the complete statement of the formula.
