Abstract

After some generalities on √©tale fundamental groups and anabelian geometry, I will explore some of the current results on the section conjecture, including those of Koenigsmann and Pop on the birational section conjecture, and a recent unpublished result of Mohamed Saidi which reduces the section conjecture for finitely generated fields over the rationals to the case of number fields.
