PhD Project
Euclidean rings

Euclidean rings are algebraic structures generalizing the set of integers. Like the integers they have a division algorithm and unique factorization. Historically it has proved very difficult to determine if a ring is Euclidean or not but there have been several recent breakthroughs which are...

PhD Project
Arithmetic of higher genus curves

Curves of genus 0 and 1 are relatively well understood. Starting in the 1990s explicit methods have been developed for the first time to deal with more complicated curves and determine all of their rational points. Open problems in this field include the role of an object called the Brauer-Manin...

PhD Project
Arithmetic of conics

The Birch and Swynnerton-Dyer conjecture is one of the million dollar problems for the 21st century as recognized by the Clay Institute. The conjecture concerns solutions of elliptic (genus 1) curves. Recently an analogy has been proposed for the much simpler case of genus 0 curves (conics)....
