A co-publication of the AMS and Centre de Recherches Mathématiques

This volume contains papers from the Short Thematic
Program on Rational Points, Rational Curves, and Entire Holomorphic
Curves and Algebraic Varieties, held from June 3–28, 2013, at
the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, Université de
Montréal, Québec, Canada.

The program was
dedicated to the study of subtle interconnections between geometric
and arithmetic properties of higher-dimensional algebraic varieties.
The main areas of the program were, among others, proving density of
rational points in Zariski or analytic topology on special varieties,
understanding global geometric properties of rationally connected
varieties, as well as connections between geometry and algebraic
dynamics exploring new geometric techniques in Diophantine
approximation.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in Diophantine/arithmetic geometry, special varieties, and geometry of rational/holomorphic curves.
