Humboldt-Forschungspreis für Prof. Jean-Louis Colliot-Thélène

Humboldt Research Award for Prof. Jean-Louis Colliot-Thélène

The Humboldt Foundation has granted Prof. Dr. Jean-Louis Colliot-Thélène (CNRS and Université Paris-Saclay) a Humboldt Research Award to conduct research at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Leibniz Universität Hannover. He will be a guest of Prof. Dr. Ulrich Derenthal (Institute of Algebra, Number Theory and Discrete Mathematics) and Prof. Dr. Stefan Schreieder (Institute of Algebraic Geometry) initially from May to July 2023. On June 6, 2023 he will give a lecture in the Mathematical-Physical Colloquium.

Professor Colliot-Thélène is internationally well-known for his outstanding research in algebraic and arithmetic geometry, and number theory. He has made important contributions to the investigation of rational and integral points on rationally connected varieties, and to rationality questions in algebraic geometry. Together with his collaborators, he has introduced and much developed several important notions in these fields, including universal torsors, flasque tori, unramified cohomology and integral Brauer-Manin obstructions. In Germany, he intends to expand his recent work on Brauer-Manin obstructions and rationality questions.
