DDC: Diophantine Problems (Fall 2020)

Decidability, Definability, and Computability in Number Theory

Diophantine Problems

Mondays at 9:00am Pacific Time
Organizers: Hector Pasten and Natalia Garcia-Fritz

This seminar will focus on Diophantine problems in a broad sense, with a view towards (but not limited to) interactions between Number Theory and Logic. Particular attention will be given to topics with the potential of further developments in the context of this MSRI scientific program. This will provide an opportunity for researchers to update on new results, techniques and some of the main problems of the field.

*Please note: For talks labeled "TBD" (To Be Determined), final speaker/topic information will be updated throughout the DDC program as it becomes available.
