Topic: | On a motivic method in Diophantine geometry |

Speaker: | Majid Hadian-Jazi |

Affiliation: | University of Illinois at Chicago |

Date: | Thursday, March 27 |

Time/Room: | 4:30pm - 5:30pm/S-101 |

By studying the variation of motivic path torsors associated to a variety, we show how certain nondensity assertions in Diophantine geometry can be translated to problems concerning K-groups. Then we use some vanishing theorems to obtain concrete results.
