Workshop on Diophantine problems and p-adic period mappings

This workshop is organized by J. Ayoub, C. Fuchs, P. Habegger, R. Pink, and G. Wüstholz. The workshop takes place from June 30-July 5, 2019 at the Böglerhof in Alpbach/Tyrol, Austria.

This summer school will continue a tradition of summer schools in Alpbach (see here) in arithmetic and geometry (e.g. 2010, p-adic periods; 2011, motives, periods and transcendence; 2012, multiple zeta-values; 2013, p-adic modular forms; 2014, periods and heights of CM abelian varieties; 2015, special cycles on Shimura varities). PhD students and postdocs present the topics.

We study the very recent paper of Brian Lawrence and Akshay Venkatesh on Diophantine problems and p-adic period mappings.
