The Fixed Point Locus of the Verschiebung on $\mathcal{M}_X(2, 0)$ for Genus2 Curves $X$ in Charateristic $2$
We prove that for every ordinary genus$2$ curve $X$ over a finite
field $\kappa$ of characteristic $2$ with
$\textrm{Aut}(X/\kappa)=\mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z} \times S_3$, there exist
$\textrm{SL}(2,\kappa[\![s]\!])$representations of $\pi_1(X)$ such
that the image of $\pi_1(\overline{X})$ is infinite. This result
produces a family of examples similar to Laszlo's counterexample
to de Jong's question regarding the finiteness of the geometric
monodromy of representations of the fundamental group.

On the Notion of Visibility of Torsors
Let $J$ be an abelian variety and
$A$ be an abelian subvariety of $J$, both defined over $\mathbf{Q}$.
Let $x$ be an element of $H^1(\mathbf{Q},A)$.
Then there are at least two definitions of $x$ being visible in $J$:
one asks that the torsor corresponding to $x$ be isomorphic over $\mathbf{Q}$
to a subvariety of $J$, and the other asks that $x$ be in the kernel
of the natural map $H^1(\mathbf{Q},A) \to H^1(\mathbf{Q},J)$. In this article, we
clarify the relation between the two definitions.

On the Rational Points of the Curve $f(X,Y)^q = h(X)g(X,Y)$
Let $q = 2,3$ and $f(X,Y)$, $g(X,Y)$, $h(X)$ be polynomials with
integer coefficients. In this paper we deal with the curve
$f(X,Y)^q = h(X)g(X,Y)$, and we show that under some favourable
conditions it is possible to determine all of its rational points.

Plane Quartic Twists of $X(5,3)$
Given an odd surjective Galois representation $\varrho\from \G_\Q\to\PGL_2(\F_3)$ and a
positive integer~$N$, there exists a twisted modular curve $X(N,3)_\varrho$
defined over $\Q$ whose rational points classify the quadratic $\Q$curves of degree $N$
realizing~$\varrho$. This paper gives a method to provide an explicit plane quartic model for
this curve in the genusthree case $N=5$.

A K3 Surface Associated With Certain Integral Matrices Having Integral Eigenvalues
In this article we will show that there are infinitely many
symmetric, integral $3 \times 3$ matrices, with zeros on the
diagonal, whose eigenvalues are all integral. We will do this by
proving that the rational points on a certain nonKummer, singular
K3 surface
are dense. We will also compute the entire NÃ©ronSeveri group of
this surface and find all low degree curves on it.

GoingDown Results for $C_{i}$Fields
We search for theorems that, given a $C_i$field $K$ and a subfield $k$ of $K$, allow
us to conclude that $k$ is a $C_j$field for some $j$. We give appropriate theorems in
the case $K=k(t)$ and $K = k\llp t\rrp$. We then consider the more difficult case where $K/k$
is an algebraic extension. Here we are able to prove some results, and make conjectures. We
also point out the connection between these questions and Lang's conjecture on nonreal function
fields over a real closed field.

Geometry and Arithmetic of Certain Double Octic CalabiYau Manifolds
We study CalabiYau manifolds constructed as double coverings of
$\mathbb{P}^3$ branched along an octic surface. We give a list of 87
examples corresponding to arrangements of eight planes defined over
$\mathbb{Q}$. The Hodge numbers are computed for all examples. There are
10 rigid CalabiYau manifolds and 14 families with $h^{1,2}=1$. The
modularity conjecture is verified for all the rigid examples.

A Reduction of the BatyrevManin Conjecture for Kummer Surfaces
Let $V$ be a $K3$ surface defined over a number field $k$. The
BatyrevManin conjecture for $V$ states that for every nonempty open
subset $U$ of $V$, there exists a finite set $Z_U$ of accumulating
rational curves such that the density of rational points on $UZ_U$ is
strictly less than the density of rational points on $Z_U$. Thus,
the set of rational points of $V$ conjecturally admits a stratification
corresponding to the sets $Z_U$ for successively smaller sets $U$.
In this paper, in the case that $V$ is a Kummer surface, we prove that
the BatyrevManin conjecture for $V$ can be reduced to the
BatyrevManin conjecture for $V$ modulo the endomorphisms of $V$
induced by multiplication by $m$ on the associated abelian surface
$A$. As an application, we use this to show that given some restrictions
on $A$, the set of rational points of $V$ which lie on rational curves
whose preimages have geometric genus 2 admits a stratification of

Counting Rational Points on Ruled Varieties
In this paper, we prove a general result computing the number of rational points
of bounded height on a projective variety $V$ which is covered by lines. The
main technical result used to achieve this is an upper bound on the number of
rational points of bounded height on a line. This upper bound is such that it
can be easily controlled as the line varies, and hence is used to sum the counting
functions of the lines which cover the original variety $V$.

Canonical Vector Heights on Algebraic K3 Surfaces with Picard Number Two
Let $V$ be an algebraic K3 surface defined over a number field $K$.
Suppose $V$ has Picard number two and an infinite group of
automorphisms $\mathcal{A} = \Aut(V/K)$. In this paper, we
introduce the notion of a vector height $\mathbf{h} \colon V \to
\Pic(V) \otimes \mathbb{R}$ and show the existence of a canonical
vector height $\widehat{\mathbf{h}}$ with the following properties:
\begin{gather*}
\widehat{\mathbf{h}} (\sigma P) = \sigma_* \widehat{\mathbf{h}} (P) \\
h_D (P) = \widehat{\mathbf{h}} (P) \cdot D + O(1),
\end{gather*}
where $\sigma \in \mathcal{A}$, $\sigma_*$ is the pushforward of
$\sigma$ (the pullback of $\sigma^{1}$), and $h_D$ is a Weil
height associated to the divisor $D$. The bounded function implied
by the $O(1)$ does not depend on $P$. This allows us to attack
some arithmetic problems. For example, we show that the number of
rational points with bounded logarithmic height in an
$\mathcal{A}$orbit satisfies
$$
N_{\mathcal{A}(P)} (t,D) = \# \{Q \in \mathcal{A}(P) : h_D (Q)
