### Galois groups of low degree points on curves

Heilbronn Number Theory Seminar

24th April 2024, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Fry Building, G.09

Low degree points on curves have been subject of intense

study for several decades, but little attention has been paid to the

Galois groups of those points. In this talk we recall primitive group

actions, and focus on low degree points whose Galois group is

primitive. We shall see that such points are relatively rare, and that

they interfere with each other. This talk is based on joint work with

Maleeha Khawaja.
