Diophantine equations: what numbers reveal about shape and structure

Colloquium presented by Henri Darmon (McGill)

This talk will be a survey of a few of the most classical Diophantine equations, and of the insights they give into mathematical structures arising in algebra, geometry and topology. Since this lecture is primarily aimed at the students participating in the McGill winter school, no prior background in mathematics at the graduate level will be assumed (at least, consciously.)
