Rational and integral points on higher-dimensional varieties

May 12 to May 16, 2014

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Tim Browning and Yuri Tschinkel

This workshop, sponsored by AIM, the NSF, and the Clay Mathematics Institute, will be devoted to the study of rational and integral points on algebraic varieties of dimension at least two.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in algebraic geometry, cohomological methods, and analytic methods to study connections between these perspectives in Diophantine geometry

The main topics for the workshop are:

  • existence of points
  • distribution of points
  • arithmetic of K3 surfaces

The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.

The deadline to apply for support to participate in this workshop has passed.
