The Mathematical Elephant
A presentation from 2021–2022 Sally Starling Seaver Fellow Holly Krieger
Holly Krieger is the Corfield Lecture in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics and a fellow of Murray Edwards College at University of Cambridge. She is exploring an emerging aspect of the connection between two fundamental fields of pure mathematics— complex dynamics and arithmetic geometry—and improving and greatly expanding recently developed mathematical tools which allow us to study the arithmetic and geometry of special points for families of dynamical systems, with applications to the structure of torsion points on elliptic curves, an example of substantial interest in number theory and geometry.
We plan to post the recording on our website a week after the event.
