DESCRIPTION:« Return of the IHÉS Postdoc Seminar »\n\n \n\nAbstract: T
he Andre-Oort conjecture is an important problem in arithmetic geometry co
ncerning subvarieties of Shimura varieties. It attempts to characterise th
ose subvarieties V for which the special points lying on V constitute a Za
riski dense subset. When the ambient Shimura variety is the moduli space o
f principally polarised abelian varieties of dimension g (in which case\,
a special point is a point corresponding to the isomorphism class of a CM
abelian variety)\, the conjecture has been obtained by Pila and Tsimerman
via the so-called Pila-Zannier strategy\, reliant on the Pila-Wilkie count
ing theorem on o-minimal structures. In this talk\, we will outline the Pi
la-Zannier strategy\, providing some introduction to Shimura varieties and
Andre-Oort\, and explain the state of the art for the full conjecture. In
particular\, we will mention certain height bounds obtained jointly with
