"Tamagawa numbers and connected components of stacks"

Let X be a smooth projective curve over a finite field and $G$ a semisimple algebraic group over its function field. Let $\mathcal{G}$ be a smooth group scheme over X with generic fiber $G$. The Tamagawa number of $G$ is an arithmetic invariant obtained from a Haar measure on the adelic points of $G$. A conjecture of Harder relates this number to the number of components of the moduli stack of $\mathcal{G}$-bundles.
