  1. DDC - Online Seminar: Diophantine stability and unsolvability

    Location: MSRI: Online/Virtual
    Speakers: Barry Mazur (Harvard University)

    To participate in this seminar, please register here: https://www.msri.org/seminars/25206

    Following Karl Rubin’s lecture last week we will consider the “relative Diophantine notion”: a field extension L/K is Diophantine Stable for a variety V defined over K if V acquires no new rational points passing from K to L. I will discuss results, heuristics, conjectures related to Diophantine Stability, and especially: applications to Hilbert’s Tenth Problem. This consists of both joint work with Karl Rubin; and also a DDC workshop project with Karl Rubin and Sasha Shlapentokh.
