SUMMARY


I will first give an introduction to the model theory of fields with valuations (for example the $p$adic numbers), and the theory of $p$adic and motivic integration. I will then consider the case of number fields, and present results on Dirichlet series and zeta functions which are Euler products of local integals, and give applications to some questions on algebraic groups, and rational points on algebraic varieties.
