Abstract : This article is concerned with the further development of the methods of p-adic analysis used in an earlier article to study the zeta function of an algebraic variety defined over a finite field. These methods are applied to the zeta function of a nonsingular hypersurface of degree d in projective n-space of characteristic p defined over the field of q elements.
