On the birational p-adic section conjecture

Pop, F (Penn)
Wednesday 29 July 2009, 10:00-11:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I plan to explain Grothendieck's section conjecture, which relates rational points of (completions of) hyperbolic curves to conjugacy classes of sections of the canonical projection between fundamental groups. I will explain a few variants of this conjecture (birational, p-adic), and finally discuss the status of the art of the conjecture.
