We study the problem of describing local components of height functions on abelian varieties over characteristic $0$ local fields as functions on spaces of torsors under various realisations of a $2$-step unipotent motivic fundamental group naturally associated to the defining line bundle. To this end, we present three main theorems giving such a description in terms of the $\mathbb Q_\ell$- and $\mathbb Q_p$-pro-unipotent etale realisations when the base field is $p$-adic, and in terms of the… 

The local theory of unipotent Kummer maps and refined Selmer schemes

We study the Galois action on paths in the $\mathbb{Q}_\ell$-pro-unipotent \'etale fundamental groupoid of a hyperbolic curve $X$ over a $p$-adic field with $\ell\neq p$. We prove an

Ramification of \'etale path torsors and harmonic analysis on graphs

We study the Galois action on paths in the $\mathbb{Q}_\ell$-pro-unipotent etale fundamental groupoid of a hyperbolic curve $X$ over a $p$-adic field with $\ell\neq p$. We prove an Oda--Tamagawa-type

Rational Points on Solvable Curves over ℚ via Non-Abelian Chabauty

We study the Selmer varieties of smooth projective curves of genus at least two defined over $\mathbb{Q}$ which geometrically dominate a curve with CM Jacobian. We extend a result of Coates and Kim

p-adic integrals and linearly dependent points on families of curves I

We prove that the set of ‘low rank’ points on sufficiently large fibre powers of families of curves are not Zariski dense. The recent work of Dimitrov–Gao–Habegger and Kühne (and Yuan) imply the

Shifted symplectic structures on derived analytic moduli of $\ell$-adic local systems and Galois representations

. We develop a characterisation of non-Archimedean derived analytic geometry based on dg enhancements of dagger algebras. This allows us to formulate derived analytic moduli functors for many types

p-adic adelic metrics and Quadratic Chabauty I

We give a new construction of p-adic heights on varieties over number fields using p-adic Arakelov theory. In analogy with Zhang’s construction of real-valued heights in terms of adelic metrics,

Local constancy of pro-unipotent Kummer maps

It is a theorem of Kim–Tamagawa that the Q`-pro-unipotent Kummer map associated to a smooth projective curve Y over a finite extension of Qp is locally constant when ` 6= p. The present paper

Semisimplicity and weight-monodromy for fundamental groups

Let X be a smooth, geometrically connected variety over a p-adic local field. We show that the pro-unipotent fundamental group of X (in both the etale and crystalline settings) satisfies the


Determining all rational points on a curve of genus at least 2 can be difficult. Chabauty's method (1941) is to intersect, for a prime number p, in the p-adic Lie group of p-adic points of the

Explicit Chabauty—Kim for the split Cartan modular curve of level 13

We extend the explicit quadratic Chabauty methods developed in previous work by the first two authors to the case of non-hyperelliptic curves. This results in an algorithm to compute the rational

A non-abelian conjecture of Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer type for hyperbolic curves

We state a conjectural criterion for identifying global integral points on a hyperbolic curve over $\mathbb{Z}$ in terms of Selmer schemes inside non-abelian cohomology functors with coefficients in

Selmer varieties for curves with CM Jacobians

We study the Selmer variety associated to a canonical quotient of the $\Q_p$-pro-unipotent fundamental group of a smooth projective curve of genus at least two defined over $\Q$ whose Jacobian

On p-adic height pairings

The aim of the present work is to construct p-adic height pairings in a sufficiently general setting, namely for Selmer groups of reasonably behaved p-adic Galois representations over number fields.

Canonical Height Pairings via Biextensions

The object of this paper is to present the foundations of a theory of p-adic-valued height pairings $$A\left( K \right) \times A'\left( K \right) \to {Q_p}$$ (*) , where Λ is a abelian

The l-component of the unipotent Albanese map

We prove a finiteness theorem for the local l ≠  p-component of the $${\mathbb{Q}}_p$$ -unipotent Albanese map for curves. As an application, we refine the non-abelian Selmer varieties arising in the

Schematic homotopy types and non-abelian Hodge theory

Abstract We use Hodge theoretic methods to study homotopy types of complex projective manifolds with arbitrary fundamental groups. The main tool we use is the schematization functor$X \mapsto

The unipotent Albanese map and Selmer varieties for curves

We study the unipotent Albanese map that associates the torsor of paths for p-adic fundamental groups to a point on a hyperbolic curve. It is shown that the map is very transcendental in nature,
