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 2017 I am
teaching the Mastermath course
Curves, with Marco Streng.
Here is a list of my publications
and preprints, together with slides from some talks.

Things I have organised
My PhD research (2002) involved doing some computations on diagonal
quartic surfaces. Here are
