Abstract

The zeta function of a nonsingular pair of quadratic forms defined over a finite field, $k$, of arbitrary characteristic is calculated. A.~Weil made this computation when $\rmchar k \neq 2$. When the pair has even order, a relationship between the number of zeros of the pair and the number of places of degree one in an appropriate hyperelliptic function field is
