Principal Bundles in Diophantine Geometry

Colloquium presented by Minhyong Kim (University of Oxford)

Principal bundles and their moduli have been important in various aspects of physics and geometry for many decades. It is perhaps not so well-known that a substantial portion of the original motivation for studying them came from number theory, namely the study of Diophantine equations. I will describe a bit of this history and some recent developments.
