Arithmetic and Geometry: Ten Years in Alpbach (AMS-202)

Gisbert Wüstholz and Clemens Fuchs


This book presents highlights of recent work in arithmetic algebraic geometry by some of the world's leading mathematicians. Together, these 2016 lectures—which were delivered in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the annual summer workshops in Alpbach, Austria—provide an introduction to high-level research on three topics: Shimura varieties, hyperelliptic continued fractions and generalized Jacobians, and Faltings heights and L-functions. The book consists of notes, written by young researchers, on three sets of lectures or minicourses given at Alpbach. The first course contains recent r ... More

Keywords: algebraic geometry, Shimura varieties, generalized Jacobians, hyperelliptic continued fractions, Faltings heights, L-functions, Langlands conjecture, Pell equation, Chowla–Selberg formula, Colmez conjecture
