This workshop will explore the various ways in which cohomology gives information on the existence and density of rational points. Here are the main topics to be covered.
- Étale cohomology of varieties over number fields: the Brauer-Manin obstruction and beyond.
- Étale cohomology of varieties over finite fields: as an example, Esnault's result that smooth rationally connected varieties over a finite field have a rational point.
- Coherent cohomology, deformation methods: applications to varieties over function fields in one or two variables over the complex field, also to varieties over finite and local fields.
- Arakelov geometry, algebraic geometry over the algebraic closure of the rationals, connexions with hyperbolicity, distribution of algebraic points of small height.
