Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation Annual Meeting
Jan 10  11, 2019The first annual meeting of the Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation will take place at the Simons Foundation in New York City. The meeting will focus on three main themes: the development and organization of software and databases supporting research in number theory and arithmetic geometry; fundamental research in arithmetic geometry inspired by computation and leading to new algorithms; and explorations of Lfunctions, modular forms, and Galois representations with elegant and unusual properties.

MIT Number Theory Seminar
Dec 4, 2018Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyDavid Roe, one of the Simons Collaboration research scientists, will be speaking in
the MIT number theory seminar on “The inverse Galois problem for padic fields”. 
Boston University Number Theory Seminar
Dec 3, 2018Boston UniversityJan Vonk, one of the Simons Collaboration affiliated scientists will be speaking in the Boston University number theory seminar on “Nonabelian Chabauty and rational points on curves”.

Silverberg Birthday Conference
Sep 17  21, 2018UC IrvineSeveral 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, 2018MITThe conference on “Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation” is the collaboration’s first formal conference, held at MIT. Review the schedule.

ANTS XIII
Jul 16  20, 2018University of Wisconsin, MadisonMany 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, 2018ICERMMany 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, 2018Simons Collaboration Seminar (open to all) by Bjorn Poonen (MIT)
3:304:30pm in MIT room 6120We 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, 2018Collaboration 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, 2018Collaboration PI John Voight gives the colloquium at Temple University, Philadelphia. Abstract

Strong Arithmetic Equivalence
Feb 5, 2018Andrew 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, 2018Collaboration 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
