A conference titled "An Expedition into Arithmetic Geometry", in memory of Bas Edixhoven, will take place at the Lorentz Center in Leiden from Tuesday 30 May to Friday 2 June 2023.

Arithmetic geometry is a geometric approach to number theory: algebraic geometry provides powerful tools to tackle number-theoretical problems. These geometric tools have turned out to be crucial for a number of great past and recent breakthroughs.

This workshop is inspired by Bas Edixhoven, who passed away early 2022 and who was a pivotal figure in the field. Bas had a natural talent to explore these geometric tools to the fullest. He demonstrated the strength of translating number theory into geometry by initiating new directions, proving important results and explaining concepts and ideas to a large number of people, from students to leading researchers.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together a diverse group of mathematicians from various backgrounds and career stages working on different subfields of arithmetic geometry. These subfields include those that Bas Edixhoven has contributed to, in particular:

The aim of this workshop is to bring together a diverse group of mathematicians from various backgrounds and career stages working on different subfields of arithmetic geometry. These subfields include those that Bas Edixhoven has contributed to, in particular:

  • Modular curves, modular forms, and Galois representations
  • (Geometric) quadratic Chabauty
  • Shimura varieties and the AndrĂ©-Oort conjecture
  • Computational arithmetic geometry

The last afternoon of the workshop will feature two talks aimed at a broader mathematical audience, including high school teachers.
