  • Logo for the site

    Apr 3, 2020 started as a resource for Boston-area number theorists but has grown rapidly into a catalog of virtual seminars around the world. It was developed by Collaboration research scientists Edgar Costa and David Roe, with the guidance of PIs Andrew Sutherland and Bjorn Poonen, all based at MIT. It relies on database infrastructure created for the current version of the L-functions and Modular Forms Database

  • VaNTAGe on-line seminar

    Mar 24 - May 19, 2020

    VaNTAGe is a virtual seminar on open conjectures in number theory and arithmetic geometry (NT&AG), organized by Rachel Pries and collaboration PI Andrew Sutherland. The purpose of the seminar is to help researchers engage with cutting-edge research in NT&AG without the expense and environmental impact of travel. The next series of lectures is on Galois representations of abelian varieties (and Sato-Tate groups in particular), with several talks by researchers affiliated with the collaboration: Kiran Kedlaya, Alina Bucur, Francesc Fité, and Andrew Sutherland.

  • Winter School on “Nonabelian Chabauty”

    Mar 7 - 11, 2020
    Tuscon, AZ

    The 2020 Arizona Winter School will be held on the topic of “Nonabelian Chabauty.” The speakers will be Jennifer Balakrishnan, Bas Edixhoven, Minhyong Kim, Bjorn Poonen, and David Zureick-Brown.

  • JMM 2020 Special Session

    Jan 15 - 18, 2020
    JMM 2020, Denver, Colorado

    Collaboration PIs Brendan Hassett and Andrew Sutherland, along with Anthony Varilly-Alvardo, are organizing the AMS Special Session on Rational Points on Algebraic Varieties: Theory and Computation during the 2020 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Denver, Colorado.

  • Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation Annual Meeting

    Jan 9 - 10, 2020
    Simons Foundation, New York City

    The second annual meeting of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation will take place at the Simons Foundation in New York City.

  • Computational Mathematics Colloquium on Sums of Three Cubes

    Nov 7, 2019
    University of Waterloo

    Collaboration PI Andrew Sutherland delivered a colloquium talk on the Sums of Three Cubes at the Computational Mathematics Colloquium at the University of Waterloo on November 7, 2019. Slides of the talk are available to view at

  • MIT Number Theory Seminar

    Sep 10 - Oct 22, 2019

    Newly hired Simons Collaboration research scientists Raymond van Bommel, Wanlin Li, Sam Schiavone, and Francesc Fité will be speaking in the MIT number theory seminar. The dates are Sept 10, Sept 24, Oct 1, and Oct 22, 2019.

  • Rational Points 2019

    Jul 14 - 20, 2019
    Lichtenfels, Germany

    The Rational Points 2019 Workshop will be held at the Franken-Akademie Schloss Schney from July 14-20, 2019. This workshop aims at bringing together the leading experts in the field, covering a broad spectrum reaching from the more theoretically-oriented over the explicit to the algorithmic aspects. Simons Collaboration PIs Jennifer Balakrishnan, Bjorn Poonen, and Andrew Sutherland will be attending.

  • CMI-HIMR Summer School in Computational Number Theory

    Jun 17 - 28, 2019
    University of Bristol

    Several of the Simons Collaboration team are involved with this summer school in England, including three of the PIs: Jennifer Balakrishnan, Andrew Sutherland, and John Voight. This will be a postgraduate mathematics 2-week program jointly funded by the Clay Mathematics Institute and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.

  • Arithmetic, Geometry, Cryptography and Coding Theory

    Jun 10 - 14, 2019
    CIRM - Luminy

    Researchers from the Simons Collaboration team will be participating in the Arithmetic, Geometry, Cryptography and Coding Theory workshop at CIRM – Luminy in France.

  • Arithmetic of low-dimensional abelian varieties

    Jun 3 - 7, 2019

    In this workshop, we will explore a number of themes in the arithmetic of abelian varieties of low dimension (typically dimension 2–4), with a focus on computational aspects. Topics will include the study of torsion points, Galois representations, endomorphism rings, Sato-Tate distributions, Mumford-Tate groups, complex and p-adic analytic aspects, L-functions, rational points, and so on.

    Our goal is for the workshop to bring together researchers working on abelian varieties in a number of facets to establish collaborations, develop algorithms, and stimulate further research.

    Questions proposed in the workshop problem session.

  • Number Theory, Arithmetic Geometry, and Computation

    Jan 19, 2019

    There will be an AMS Special Session on Number Theory, Arithmetic Geometry, and Computation during the Joint Math Meetings (JMM) being held at in Baltimore, MD. Organizers are Brendan Hassett (Brown University), Drew Sutherland (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and John Voight (Dartmouth College). The program includes talks by collaboration members Costa and Derickx and affiliates Triantafillou and Vonk.
