Point-Counting and the Zilber-Pink Conjecture (1/4)

By Jonathan Pila

Appears in collection : Jonathan Pila : Point-Counting and the Zilber-Pink Conjecture

The Zilber-Pink conjecture is a diophantine finiteness conjecture. It unifies and gives a far-reaching generalization of the classical Mordell-Lang and Andre-Oort conjectures, and is wide open in general. Point-counting results for definable sets in o-minimal structures provide a strategy for proving suitable cases which has had some success, in particular in its use in proving the Andre-Oort conjecture. The course will describe the Zilber-Pink conjecture and the point-counting approach to proving cases of it, eventually concentrating on the case of a curve in a power of the modular curve. We will describe the model-theoretic contexts of the conjectures and techniques, and the essential arithmetic ingredients.
