The aim of this conference is to bring together the researchers working in different domains related to the study of global fields.
The study of global fields and varieties over them has been a central theme of research for more than a century. It involves many research areas in number theory, arithmetic algebraic geometry and diophantine geometry.
The main topics on which we will focus include:
- rational and integral points (for varieties over global fields), various obstructions to the local-global principle;
- heights and Arakelov Geometry;
- elliptic curves over global fields, zeta and L-functions.
- interaction with information theory.
