**John Torrence Tate Jr.** was an American mathematician, distinguished for many fundamental contributions in algebraic number theory, arithmetic geometry and related areas in algebraic geometry. He was awarded the Abel Prize in 2010.

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.

**Joseph Hillel Silverman** is a professor of mathematics at Brown University working in arithmetic geometry, arithmetic dynamics, and cryptography.

**David Rodney "Roger" Heath-Brown** FRS, is a British mathematician working in the field of analytic number theory.

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.

**Gisbert Wüstholz** is a German mathematician internationally known for his fundamental contributions to number theory and arithmetic geometry.

**Alexander Lubotzky** is an Israeli mathematician and former politician who is currently a professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science and an adjunct professor at Yale University. He served as a member of the Knesset for The Third Way party between 1996 and 1999. In 2018 he won the Israel Prize for his accomplishments in mathematics and computer science.

**Barry Charles Mazur** is an American mathematician and the Gerhard Gade University Professor at Harvard University. His contributions to mathematics include his contributions to Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem in number theory, Mazur's torsion theorem in arithmetic geometry, the Mazur swindle in geometric topology, and the Mazur manifold in differential topology.

**Harald Andrés Helfgott** is a Peruvian mathematician working in number theory. Helfgott is a researcher at the CNRS at the Institut Mathématique de Jussieu, Paris.

**Minhyong Kim** is a South Korean mathematician who specialises in arithmetic geometry and anabelian geometry.

**Vijaya Kumar Murty** is an Indo-Canadian mathematician working primarily in number theory. He is a professor at the University of Toronto and is the Director of the Fields Institute.

**Andrea Malchiodi** is an Italian mathematician who is active in the fields of partial differential equations and calculus of variations, with several contributions to geometric analysis.

**Klaus D. Schmidt** is an Austrian mathematician and retired professor at the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna.

In mathematics, the **determinant method** is any of a family of techniques in analytic number theory.

**Xiaonan Ma** is a Chinese mathematician working in global analysis and local index theory.

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.

**Rosa M. Miró-Roig** is a professor of mathematics at the University of Barcelona, specializing in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. She did her graduate studies at the University of Barcelona, earning a Ph.D. in 1985 under the supervision of Sebastià Xambó-Descamps with a thesis entitled *Haces reflexivos sobre espacios proyectivos*.

**Xavier Tolsa** is a Catalan mathematician, specializing in analysis.

**George Marinescu** is a Romanian mathematician, specializing in complex geometry, global analysis, and spectral theory.
