Title: Algebraic values of meromorphic maps and transcendence
Abstract of Talk
A general theorem in transcendence theory, the so called ``Schneider-Lang criterio'', which roughly says that if a collection of meromorphic function satisfies a system of linear differential equations then there are only finitely many complex numbers at which the functions assumes algebraic values simultaneously and the cardinality of the set of complex points can be bounded by the growth of the functions and the degree of the number field. I will speak on this and on more recent progresses in this direction ( in particular the more challenging question of eliminating the dependence of the number field in the cardinality bound ).
