PIMS-UBC Distinguished Colloquium: Umberto Zannier

  • Date: 03/02/2018
Speaker(s):
Umberto Zannier, SNS Pisa
Location: 

University of British Columbia

Topic: 

Some specialization problems in Geometry and Number Theory

Description: 

We shall survey over the general issue of `specializations which preserve a property', for a parametrized family of algebraic varieties. We shall limit ourselves to a few examples. We shall start by recalling typical contexts like Bertini and Hilbert Irreducibility theorems, illustrating some new result. Then we shall jump to much more recent instances, related to algebraic families of abelian varieties.
