On the Gamma-Factors of Motives II

Using an idea of C. Simpson we describe Serre's local $\Gamma$-factors in terms of a complex of sheaves on a simple dynamical system. This geometrizes our earlier construction of the $\Gamma$-factors. Relations of this approach with the $\varepsilon$-factors are also studied.
