Abstract

There is an age-old relationship between arithmetic and geometry, going back at least to Euclid-s Elements. Historically, it has usually been geometry that has been used to enrich our understanding of arithmetic, but the purpose of this workshop is to study the flow of information in the other direction. Namely, how can arithmetic enhance our understanding of geometry? This meeting will bring together researchers from both sides of the partnership, to explore ways to bind the two fields ever closer together.
