Adam Logan's Professional Home Page

I am currently visiting the Department of Mathematics at McGill University as a guest of Henri Darmon. Recently I participated in the special semester at the Centre de Recherches Mathematiques in Montreal. My most recent academic position was at the University of Waterloo, in the Department of Pure Mathematics.

Previously, I received an AB degree from Princeton in 1995, and the PhD degree from Harvard in 1999.

My main research interest is in rational points on curves and surfaces, and especially using the Brauer-Manin obstruction to prove that there are none. For reasons too complicated to explain here, I wrote my thesis in algebraic geometry. Here are links to most of my papers:

In addition, you may download my package for computing the Brauer obstruction on del Pezzo surfaces of degree 4 over the rational field. You might start by looking at the readme file. This new version fixes a few things that got broken somewhere between Magma 2.11 and 2.13. Thanks to Anthony Varilly for pointing them out.
