Counting rational points and rational curves: from Waring's problem to quantum cohomology

Colloquium presented by Yuri Manin (Max-Planck-Institut fuer Mathematik)

I will explain some results, constructions, and conjectures of the last two decades, motivated by number theory and quantum string theory respectively, whose common theme is: counting rational points/rational curves on algebraic varieties.
