Topic: 

On incidences between points and unit circles in R^3 and related questions

Description: 

In this talk I will survey results related to incidences between points and algebraic curves in dimensions 2,3 and 4, and will concentrate on the problem of incidences between points and restricted families of curves in R^3, e.g, "unit circles" is a restricted family inside the family of circles in R^3. I will show a new upper bound for incidences between points and unit circles in R^3, and state more general results and other applications as well.
