## 59.60 Cohomology of curves

The next task at hand is to compute the étale cohomology of a smooth curve over an algebraically closed field with torsion coefficients, and in particular show that it vanishes in degree at least 3. To prove this, we will compute cohomology at the generic point, which amounts to some Galois cohomology.
