Title:
The Unity of Mathematics: Examples from Transcendental Number Theory

Abstract of Talk

In this series of three talks, the speaker will demonstrate the Unity of
Mathematics by way of walking
through a garden of examples from various disciplines that are related to
Transcendental
Number Theory. Our tour will include: Diophantine approximation, Algebraic
number theory,
Differential equations, Special functions, Diophantine geometry, Arakelov
theory, Geometry
of numbers, Complex analysis (one or several variables), Hormander Del-bar
estimates, Commutative
algebra, Seshadri's constant, Weil's conjecture on characters of type A and
A0, l-adic
representations, p-adic analysis, Topology, Arithmetic complexity of
polynomials, Dynamical
systems, Automata theory, Algebraic combinatorics, Logic: model theory.
