Diophantine equations are systems of polynomial equations solved over integers or rational numbers. Diophantine geometry is the study of Diophantine equations using ideas and techniques from algebraic geometry. It is one of the oldest subjects of mathematics and the most popular part of number theory connecting it to algebraic geometry.
The goal of this session is to explore recent developments in the theory of arithmetic geometry and with special focus on curves and Jacobian varieties. We intend to bring together mathematicians, working on this area of research, from the USA and from Europe encouraging further cooperation and discussion. We will especially encourage younger mathematicians and graduate students and newcomers in the area.
The session will focus on the following topics, but we will be open and welcoming to talks which do not fall in the list of topics below.
