Topic: 

Heights and moments of abelian varieties

Description: 

In number theory and diophantine geometry, the theory of "heights" is essential in studying finiteness questions. Roughly, they capture the "arithmetic complexity" of the object of study. We give a formula relating various notions of heights of abelian varieties. We also discuss the case of Jacobians in some detail, where graphs and electrical networks will play a key role.Based on joint works with Robin de Jong (Leiden).
