This is Martin Bright's mathematical home page.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the American University of Beirut. I work in the area of Diophantine equations and arithmetic geometry, specifically on the Brauer–Manin obstruction and related questions about rational points on varieties.

In the 2013–14 academic year I am teaching:

- MATH 101: Calculus & Analytic Geometry I
- MATH 341: Modules & Rings

I am on research leave in Spring 2014.

Here is a list of my publications and preprints, together with slides from some talks.

Look me up on Google Scholar or MathSciNet.

- 1–5 September 2014: Workshop on “New developments in algebraic geometry” at National Taiwan University

- 12–16 May 2014: Workshop on Rational and integral points on higher-dimensional varieties at the American Institute of Mathematics in Palo Alto, Califorinia
- March 2014: Visiting the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick, Coventry, UK
- March 2014: Visiting the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bristol, UK
- February 2014: Visiting the Department of Mathematics at Rice University, Houston, Texas
- 21–27 July 2013: Rational Points 2013, Thurnau, Germany
- 27–31 May 2013: Rational Points – Geometric, Analytic and Explicit Approaches, University of Warwick, UK
- 25–27 April 2013: Workshop on Number Theory, American University of Beirut
- 1–24 January 2013: visiting the MAGMA group, University of Sydney, Australia
- 10–14 September 2012: Workshop on Cohomological Methods in Arithmetic Geometry, University of Zurich, Switzerland
- July–September 2012: Rational Points and Algebraic Cycles, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland

- From Easter 2010 to summer 2011 I organised the Warwick number theory seminar.
- Ronald van Luijk, Damiano Testa and I gave an instructional workshop on the geometry and arithmetic of surfaces at Warwick in April 2008, organised by Samir Siksek and ourselves.
- Tim Browning and I organised Diophantine Equations via Analytic Number Theory (DEViANT), 9–12 July 2007, Bristol.

My PhD research (2002) involved doing some computations on diagonal quartic surfaces. Here are some bits of code and results.
