Number Theory

Title: Height pairings and torsion points
Speaker: Laura DeMarco
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I will discuss uniformity questions surrounding Unlikely Intersection problems -- the most famous of which is the Manin-Mumford Conjecture (proved by Raynaud) -- and a new result about elliptic curves and the geometry of their torsion points, joint with Holly Krieger and Hexi Ye. If there is time, I will explain the connection between this problem and dynamics on P^1.
