Lecture 3: Ambients for the Betti map and the question of its rank

Thursday, November 16, 2017 -
5:00pm to 6:00pm
In this last lecture we shall further consider some of the mentioned contexts involving the Betti map. We shall also discuss in short some recent work with Yves AndrĂ© and Pietro Corvaja, where we obtain some general criteria ensuring that on appropriate assumptions the Betti map has a differential of maximal rank. The results extend what comes from Manin's theorem and for instance imply topological density of points in the base which yield torsion for the relevant section.
