This is Martin Bright's mathematical home page.

I am a member of the Mathematisch Instituut at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands. 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 spring of 2018 I am teaching Algebra 3 in Leiden, and the Mastermath course Elliptic Curves, with Marco Streng.

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

**Notes from the Autumn School in Mainz, October 2017, now available here.**
