  • Silverberg Birthday Conference

    Sep 17 - 21, 2018
    UC Irvine

    Several of the Simons Collaboration PI’s (Jennifer Balakrishnan, Noam Elkies, and Andrew Sutherland) are speaking at the fall conference celebrating Alice Silverberg’s 60th birthday. The topic will be on open questions in cryptography and number theory.

  • Conference on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation

    Aug 20 - 24, 2018

    The conference on “Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation” is the collaboration’s first formal conference, held at MIT. Review the schedule.


    Jul 16 - 20, 2018
    University of Wisconsin, Madison

    Many collaboration members will participate in the thirteenth Algorithmic Number Theory Symposium held at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

  • Birational Geometry and Arithmetic

    May 10 - 14, 2018

    Many collaboration members will attend this ICERM workshop on birational geometry where the focus will be on the interplay between theoretical developments and explicit constructions, e.g., in the study of Cox rings of Fano varieties, rationality problems, Manin’s conjecture. Abstract

  • Number field fragments and Fermat’s last theorem

    Apr 6, 2018

    Simons Collaboration Seminar (open to all) by Bjorn Poonen (MIT)
    3:30-4:30pm in MIT room 6-120

    We describe an attempt (unsuccessful so far) to give a new proof of Fermat’s last theorem, involving geometry of numbers and the isotypic components of a Galois number field viewed as a representation of its Galois group.

  • Rigorous computation of the endomorphism ring of a Jacobian

    Mar 5, 2018

    Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) speaks in the Brown University Algebra seminar on algorithms for the rigorous computation of the endomorphism ring of the Jacobian of a curve defined over a number field. Abstract

  • Computing Belyi Maps

    Feb 6, 2018

    Collaboration PI John Voight gives the colloquium at Temple University, Philadelphia. Abstract

  • Strong Arithmetic Equivalence

    Feb 5, 2018

    Andrew Sutherland (MIT), a collaboration PI, discusses research results that have applications to the construction of curves with isomorphic Jacobians and number fields with the same zeta function in the Brown University Algebra seminar. Abstract

  • Modularity of K3 surfaces: explicit methods and computational questions

    Feb 2, 2018

    Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) will discuss the predictions of the Langlands program for K3 surfaces, presenting some examples, open problems, and computational challenges. At 4:00pm at MIT. Abstract

  • Heuristics for Boundedness of Ranks of Elliptic Curves

    Feb 1, 2018

    Collaboration PI John Voight (Dartmouth) gives the Math Colloquium at Penn State University on Heuristics for Boundedness of Ranks of Elliptic Curves. He also speaks on Mock Heegner points and Sylvester’s Conjecture in the Number Theory Seminar.

  • ICERM Mixer at the Joint Mathematics Meetings

    Jan 12, 2018
    Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel

    To learn more about our collaboration, join past and future ICERM participants 6pm-8pm in the Catalina room. Refreshments will be served.
