Abstract

There are many open conjectures about the algebraic behaviour of transcendental functions in arithmetic geometry, one of which is the Existential Closedness problem. In this talk I will review recent developments made on this question: the cases where we have unconditional existence of solutions, the conditional existence of generic solutions (depending on the conjecture of periods and Zilber-Pink), and even a few cases of unconditional existence of generic solutions. Many of the results I will mention are joint work with (different subsets of) Vahagn Aslanyan, Jonathan Kibry, Sebastián Herrero, and Roy Zhao.
