Uniformity of rational points and tropical geometry
A recent result of Stoll uses p-adic integration to prove that there is a number N(g) such that for all hyperelliptic curves X/Q of genus g ≥ 2 and Mordell--Weil rank r ≤ g-3, one has #X(Q) ≤ N(g). This is a special case of the uniform Mordell conjecture. I'll show how linear systems on metric graphs can be employed to extend Stoll's theorem to all curves X/Q with r ≤ g-3. I'll also indicate how these techniques along with more refined structure theory of Berkovich curves can be used to prove special cases of the uniform Manin--Mumford conjecture. This work is joint with Eric Katz and David Zureick--Brown. |
