Pure Maths Colloquium: Diophantine statistics

Presented by Emmanuel Peyre , Grenoble

15 February 2016 16:00 in CM221

Considering "small" rational solutions of polynomial equations in several variables as random data on the set of real solutions, one can try to understand how they are asymptotically distributed. It turns out that the solutions often tend to accumulate on some smaller sets. One of the current challenge in diophantine geometry is to interpret this phenomena. In this talk, we shall follow an experimental approach based on simple examples.
