The classical n-variable Kloosterman sums over the finite field Fpgive rise to a lisse Q̄l-sheaf Kln+1on Gm, Fp}=P1Fp-, which we call the Kloosterman sheaf. Let Lp(Gm, Fp, SymkKln+1, s) be the L-function of the k-fold symmetric product of Kln+1. We construct an explicit virtual scheme X of finite type over Spec Z such that the p-Euler factor of the zeta function of X coincides with Lp(Gm, Fp, SymkKln+1, s). We also prove similar results for ⊗kKln+1and k Kln+1. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
