Integral points on varieties and generalizations of the Schmidt subspace theorem

Gordon Heier (University of Houston)

We will discuss recent advances on the degeneracy of integral points on projective varieties arising from generalizations of the Schmidt subspace theorem. The focus is on integral points with respect to reducible divisors whose components are not necessarily numerically equivalent and satisfy certain mild positivity assumptions. Techniques from algebraic geometry and convex geometry will be used. This is joint work with Aaron Levin.
