Prof. Omid Amini (CNRS - Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris): Graph theory in arithmetic and algebraic geometry

Academic or specialist Colloquium / Congress / Forum

Despite their simplicity of nature, graphs are among the richest mathematical objects whose links to other branches of mathematics constantly surprise.

In this talk, I will aim to explain how some concepts which have shaped the development of modern graph theory appear naturally in algebraic geometry, in the study of the space of solutions of systems of polynomial equations. I will discuss two
themes: geometric universality of graphs and control of arithmetic points of algebraic curves.
