Abstract

In arithmetic geometry, one studies solutions to polynomial equations defined with arithmetically interesting coefficients, such as integers or rational numbers. One way to study such objects, which has seen tremendous success in the last several decades, is by investigating their symmetries. Quite surprisingly, in several interesting situations, many of the geometric and arithmetic properties of the objects in question are actually controlled by the object’s symmetries.
