  • Offers a unique synthesis of techniques: tools from complex algebraic geometry are applied to fundamental questions in number theory and Diophantine geometry
  • Investigates the connection between derived equivalences and existence of rational points on varieties, especially on K3 surfaces
  • Includes a founding paper in the emerging theory of universal triviality of the Chow group of 0-cycles and its relationship to stable rationality problems

About this book

The contributions in this book explore various contexts in which the derived category of coherent sheaves on a variety determines some of its arithmetic. This setting provides new geometric tools for interpreting elements of the Brauer group. With a view towards future arithmetic applications, the book extends a number of powerful tools for analyzing rational points on elliptic curves, e.g., isogenies among curves, torsion points, modular curves, and the resulting descent techniques, as well as higher-dimensional varieties like K3 surfaces. Inspired by the rapid recent advances in our understanding of K3 surfaces, the book is intended to foster cross-pollination between the fields of complex algebraic geometry and number theory.
