Overview

Algebraic curves are one of the most classical objects of mathematics, Their study led to the concept of Jacobian and more generally that of an Abelian variety. The goal of this session is to focus on the arithmetic aspects of theory.
We will explore minimal models of curves, rational points on curves, Abelian varieties, isogenies, Honda-Tate theory, Weil descent, applications to isogeny based cryptography, etc. The area is a very active area of research and we expect that the session will be well attended.
We intend to invite many younger mathematicians, graduate students, and recent PhD’s.
