Joint Seminar

About the Seminar

The “Joint Seminar in Algebraic and Complex Geometry” is a research seminar, organized by the research groups in Basel, Freiburg, Nancy, Saarbrücken and Strasbourg. The seminar meets once or twice per semester in Strasbourg, for a full day. There are about four talks per meeting, both by invited guests and by speakers from the organizing universities. We aim to leave ample room for discussions and for a friendly chat.

The talks are open for everyone. Contact one of the organizers if you are interested in attending the meeting. We have some (very limited) funds that might help to support travel for some junior participants.

Speakers, Titles, Abstracts

  • Ariyan Javanpeykar (Mainz): Dynamics of varieties with only finitely many rational points
    We present recent work with Junyi Xie in which we show that a variety over a number field with only finitely many rational points in any given number field has only finitely many dominant rational self-maps. This result is motivated by Lang-Vojta’s conjecture. Indeed, such varieties should be of general type. We also prove similar results about varieties for which moduli spaces of maps from curves are bounded.
