The geometric constants in Manin's Conjecture

Tuesday, October 6, 2015 -
4:30pm to 6:00pm
Manin's Conjecture predicts that the growth of points of bounded height is controlled by certain geometric constants. I will analyze the geometry underlying these constants and discuss applications to Manin's Conjecture. A key tool is the minimal model program.
