Some Problems of Unlikely Intersections in Arithmetic and Geometry (AM-181)

Umberto Zannier


This book considers the so-called unlikely intersections, a topic that embraces well-known issues, such as Lang's and Manin–Mumford's, concerning torsion points in subvarieties of tori or abelian varieties. More generally, the book considers algebraic subgroups that meet a given subvariety in a set of unlikely dimension. The book is an expansion of the Hermann Weyl Lectures delivered by the author at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in May 2010.The book consists of four chapters and seven brief appendixes. The first chapter considers multiplicative algebraic groups, presenting pro ... More

Keywords: unlikely intersections, torsion points, multiplicative algebraic groups, arithmetic, Manin–Mumford issue, André–Oort conjecture, Pila
