November 4-8, 2024 in Groningen, the Netherlands

The workshop is aimed at young researchers such as PhD students and postdocs, and it features three mini-courses on different aspects of rational points.


Room 105 in the Bernoulliborg, Zernike Campus, Groningen, the Netherlands.

Mini-courses by:

Damaris Schindler (Universität Göttingen)

Title: Counting techniques for rational points

Abstract: The goal of this mini-course is to introduce techniques from analytic number theory which are useful in the study of rational points on varieties. This will include a short introduction to the Hardy-Littlewood circle method and if time permits, we will discuss examples, where sieve methods and methods from additive combinatorics can be used in the context of counting rational points on varieties.
