Lang's conjecture and level structures on abelian varieties [video]


Before Mazur proved his theorem on the possible torsion groups on elliptic curves over Q, Manin had shown in 1969 that for a fixed number field K and prime p, the p-primary torsion of elliptic curves over K was uniformly bounded.  We will explain a result in this direction for more general abelian varieties, subject to Lang's conjecture on rational points on varieties of general type.  This is joint work with Dan Abramovich.
