Density of Rational and Integral Points


Useful links

Workshop of the Israel Science Foundation


3rd-7th January 2011


Over the last few decades the topic of counting rational and integral points on varieties has witnessed a surge of activity. We now have several basic conjectures and a spectrum of techniques for tackling them, encompassing:

  1. analytic number theory and torsors;
  2. harmonic analysis on adelic spaces; and
  3. dynamical systems and mixing.
The main goal of this meeting is to bring together experts in the various schools to stimulate further research and seed future collaborations.
