Title: Rational points over finite and local fields and Hodge theory.

Speaker: Prof. H. Esnault
Univ. of Duisburg-Essen

Abstract: we review the relation between Hodge level and rational points over finite fields (Lang-Manin conjecture solved in 2002), then the local field analog of this (still a conjecture).
