Timothy Browning is a mathematician working in number theory, examining the interface of analytic number theory and Diophantine geometry. [2] Browning is currently a Professor of number theory at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) in Klosterneuburg, Austria. [3]



In 2008, Browning was awarded the Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society for his significant contributions on the interface of analytic number theory and arithmetic geometry concerning the number and distribution of rational and integral solutions to Diophantine equations. [4]

In 2009, Browning won the Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer Prize . [5] The prize is awarded for a mathematical monograph of an expository nature presenting the latest developments in an active area of research in Mathematics, in which the applicant has made important contributions. [6] Browning won the prize for his monograph entitled Quantitative Arithmetic of Projective Varieties. [6] [7]

In 2010, Browning was awarded the Leverhulme Mathematics Prize for his work on number theory and diophantine geometry. [8]

In mathematics, Diophantine geometry is the study of Diophantine equations by means of powerful methods in algebraic geometry. By the 20th century it became clear for some mathematicians that methods of algebraic geometry are ideal tools to study these equations. Diophantine geometry is part of the broader field of arithmetic geometry.

This is a glossary of arithmetic and diophantine geometry in mathematics, areas growing out of the traditional study of Diophantine equations to encompass large parts of number theory and algebraic geometry. Much of the theory is in the form of proposed conjectures, which can be related at various levels of generality.

A height function is a function that quantifies the complexity of mathematical objects. In Diophantine geometry, height functions quantify the size of solutions to Diophantine equations and are typically functions from a set of points on algebraic varieties to the real numbers.

The Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer Prize is a prize in mathematics, first awarded in 1993. It honors the memory of Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer (1912–1967), a self-taught Catalan mathematician who, despite a serious physical disability, was very active in research in classical analysis. This award acknowledges an outstanding mathematical monograph of an expository nature, presenting the latest developments in an active area of mathematics research. The annually awarded prize consists of €15,000 as of 2017. The winning monograph is also published in Birkhauser-Verlag's series Progress in Mathematics. It is awarded by the Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer Foundation.
