The interplay of local and global aspects of Diophantine equations

The interplay of local and global aspects of Diophantine equations
Date
19/03/2018 (18:15)
Location:
Boilerhouse Auditorium
Description
One of the most classical areas of Mathematics is the study of Diophantine equations, named after the Greek mathematician Diophantus of Alexandria. Diophantine equations are polynomial equations such as x^2+y^2=2018 that we want to solve in integers as for example x=43 and y=13. The subject has seen tremendous progress in recent decades and it is only now that we begin to understand many old problems. In this lecture we take a modern look on such questions and will see that in order to handle integer solutions one needs to consider the underlying equations in a more general context than just over the integers.
