Abstract

In the talk I will give an introduction to the Manin-Mumford conjecture and to the Pila-Zannier strategy for attacking it in the case of products of elliptic curves. if the permits it, I will also speak about how this same strategy has allowed to attack the analogous Andr√©-Oort conjecture for Shimura Varieties of abelian type.
