Points of small height on abelian varieties over function fields

room MATH 126
Thu 2 Oct 2014, 3:30pm4:30pm
Abstract
An old conjecture of Lang (for elliptic curves) generalized by Silverman, asserts that the NéronTate height of a rational point of an abelian variety defined over a number field can be bounded below linearly in terms of the Faltings height of the underlying abelian variety. We shall explore the function field analogue of this problem.

Rational points on hyperelliptic curves

room MATH 126
Thu 9 Oct 2014, 3:30pm4:30pm
Abstract
I will define hyperelliptic curves, and describe three families of curves of each genus n ≥ 2. I will then discuss results of Bhargava, Poonen, Stoll, Shankar and Wang, which show that most curves in these families have the minimal number of rational points.
