We prove quantitative versions of Borel and Harish-Chandra’s theorems on reduction theory for arithmetic groups. Firstly, we obtain polynomial bounds on the lengths of reduced integral vectors in any rational representation of a reductive group. Secondly, we obtain polynomial bounds in the construction of fundamental sets for arithmetic subgroups of reductive groups, as the latter vary in a real conjugacy class of subgroups of a fixed reductive group. Our results allow us to apply the Pila… 
Effective André–Oort for non-compact curves in Hilbert modular varieties
In the proofs of most cases of the André-Oort conjecture, there are two different steps whose effectivity is unclear: the use of generalizations of Brauer-Siegel and the use of Pila-Wilkie. Only the
Height bounds for certain exceptional points in some variations of Hodge structures
We consider smooth projective morphisms f : X → S of Kvarieties with S an open curve and K a number field. We establish upper bounds of the Weil height h(s) by [K(s) : K] at certain points s ∈ S(K̄)
Distinguished categories and the Zilber-Pink conjecture
We propose an axiomatic approach towards studying unlikely intersections by introducing the framework of distinguished categories. This includes commutative algebraic groups and mixed Shimura
Lattices with skew-Hermitian forms over division algebras and unlikely intersections
This paper has two objectives. First, we study lattices with skewHermitian forms over division algebras with positive involutions. For division algebras of Albert types I and II, we show that such a
Unlikely Intersections with ExCM curves in A2
The Zilber--Pink conjecture predicts that an algebraic curve in A2 has only finitely many intersections with the special curves, unless it is contained in a proper special subvariety. Under a large


O-minimality and certain atypical intersections
We show that the strategy of point counting in o-minimal structures can be applied to various problems on unlikely intersections that go beyond the conjectures of Manin-Mumford and Andr\'e-Oort. We
Unlikely intersections with Hecke translates of a special subvariety
We prove some cases of the Zilber-Pink conjecture on unlikely intersections in Shimura varieties. Firstly, we prove that the Zilber-Pink conjecture holds for intersections between a curve and the
Unlikely intersections with $E$ $\times$ CM curves in $\mathcal{A}_2$
The Zilber-Pink conjecture predicts that an algebraic curve in $\mathcal{A}_2$ has only finitely many intersections with the special curves, unless it is contained in a proper special subvariety.
Effective Estimates on Integral Quadratic Forms: Masser’s Conjecture, Generators of Orthogonal Groups, and Bounds in Reduction Theory
In this paper we prove a conjecture of David Masser on small height integral equivalence between integral quadratic forms. Using our resolution of Masser’s conjecture we show that integral orthogonal
Families of abelian varieties with many isogenous fibres
Let Z be a subvariety of the moduli space of principally polarised abelian varieties of dimension g over the complex numbers. Suppose that Z contains a Zariski dense set of points which correspond to
Applications of the hyperbolic Ax–Schanuel conjecture
In 2014, Pila and Tsimerman gave a proof of the Ax–Schanuel conjecture for the $j$ -function and, with Mok, have recently announced a proof of its generalization to any (pure) Shimura variety. We
The Book of Involutions
This monograph yields a comprehensive exposition of the theory of central simple algebras with involution, in relation with linear algebraic groups. It aims to provide the algebra-theoretic
Conjugation of semisimple subgroups over real number fields of bounded degree
Let $G$ be a linear algebraic group over a field $k$ of characteristic 0. We show that any two connected semisimple $k$-subgroups of $G$ that are conjugate over an algebraic closure of $k$ are
Height bounds and the Siegel property
Let $G$ be a reductive group defined over $\mathbb{Q}$ and let $\mathfrak{S}$ be a Siegel set in $G(\mathbb{R})$. The Siegel property tells us that there are only finitely many $\gamma \in
