Unlikely intersections in algebraic groups and Shimura varieties
March 28 to April 1, 2011
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
Jonathan Pila and Umberto Zannier
This workshop will explore the recent conjectures
on``unlikely intersections'' due to Zilber, Pink, and
Bombieri-Masser-Zannier, and related or analogous problems
in model theory, diophantine geometry, and arithmetic dynamics.
A particular objective is to increase dialogue between some
different interested communities whose interests centre on:
(i) Shimura varieties/Andre-Oort conjecture, (ii) diophantine
questions on multiplicative groups and abelian varieties,
(iii) arithmetic dynamics, and (iv) mathematical logic.
