Workshop of the Israel Science Foundation
3rd-7th January 2011
Over the last few decades the topic of counting rational and integral points on varieties has witnessed a surge of activity. We now have several basic conjectures and a spectrum of techniques for tackling them, encompassing:
- analytic number theory and torsors;
- harmonic analysis on adelic spaces; and
- dynamical systems and mixing.

We will transport all participants who require it to the conference venue. On the morning of Monday Jan 3 there will be a bus picking up participants at 3 stops:
- Tel Aviv,
- Ben Gurion International Airport,
This workshop will take place at the Ein Gedi Field School in Israel, an oasis located west of the Dead Sea [31°27'N 35°23'E]. Temperatures in January may average from a low of 7 to a high of 20 degrees Celsius.
